Tech wizard Martin Bishop is hired by governments and corporations to break into their security systems to point out vulnerabilities. Bishop’s coterie of colleagues are an odd lot, including former CIA and NSA operatives, a college-age genius, a conspiracy theorist, and a blind computer hacker. But when Bishop gets to work cracking a new system, it turns out he is the target of a covert probe.
