Michael Ray Korsakov’s journalism career had become stagnant, until he stumbled across a story that lead to his incarceration. When Michael begins investigating an illegal immigration conflict in Edinburg, Texas, he is thrust into a perpetual world of superhighways, monopoly, conspiracy, and murder. It also spurs Michael into a torrid love interest with the founder of a watchdog organization that monitors the superhighway system, Helena Stratos, a social activist and contract attorney with a sordid past who’s bent on exposing the NAFTA blueprint. While Michael and Helena begin uncovering a massive monopoly involving private and public organizations, whistleblower Jay Jacobs is found dead in his suburban home in the outskirts of Austin. Michael and Helena race to uncover the perpetrators behind the plot in a story that takes them across the United States, Mexico, and Canada. In the process they are aided by an x-CIA agent who happened to be a close friend of the deceased Jay Jacobs, who has his own motives to expose the monopoly. But his help comes with a price tag, what will Michael and Helena have to do in return?
