About this title


We've heard about the devastation that computers may cause at year's end - but what about the evil that men may do?

With the millennium fast approaching, vast sums of money begin to disappear from Department of Defense accounts, and then from a major bank whose y2k project is headed by British-born Annette Ashby. The culprit? A computer worm. It threatens to spread across the country, even the world, imperiling the global economy - and if the worm isn't found and eradicated before December 31st, banks around the world will unwittingly archive it into their vital data files.

Who can Annette trust? The shadow of suspicion has fallen across two men on her year 2000 computer team. Nerd-next-door Leo Hermann has abandoned his prestigious Silicon Valley job for a chance to win Annette's love. And his rival, the equally brilliant and farm more charming Russian migr, has his own plans for Annette.

When the FBI and the CIA join the hunt, the action moves to St. Petersburg, then back to the States as the y2k team races the millennium clock to save the world's economy from the computer worm that could trigger its collapse - this is "The Chaos Protocol."
