Since the death of his wife, advertising executive Dante Ellis has struggled to rebuild a stable life for himself and his young daughter, Abigail. Their idyllic world is plunged into a harrowing nightmare after he’s targeted by a group of ruthless hackers known only as Dark Messiah. Soon after, a highly advanced dragonfly drone flits through the shadows, watching his every move. Like a harbinger of evil, terrible things happen whenever it appears.

Dante soon discovers no part of his life is too sacred to be used against him, no secret buried too deep. What began as a veiled threat rapidly descends into a desperate conflict for everything he holds dear.

From the glittering streets of Hollywood to the shadowy digital underworld, this riveting, fast-paced, technothriller shows what might happen if everyday technology was used to turn our darkest secrets into our greatest fears.

A word of warning: You may never look at dragonflies the same way again.
