About this title

Synopsis:

It's the late 1980s, and Microsoft and Apple are at war. The two powerhouses face off in a copyright battle that will determine whether Microsoft will be allowed to continue developing its Windows operating system. If Microsoft wins, it will be able to provide personal computers with the same efficient interface already available on Macs.Steven Lee, one of Apple's brightest engineers, is infuriated when a court rules in favor of Microsoft. He makes a personal vow: to get back at the U.S. Judicial system. The legal system must be taught the errors of its ways.Lee proceeds to develop a viruslike code that will cripple personal computers. He sells the code to the Chinese government, which unleashes the virus. Soon, personal computers everywhere slow down to a fraction of their normal speed. That's just what Lee wants, of course. The Chinese government comes to the rescue with an antidote disk, and Lee seeks to share in the profits. But with billions of dollars at stake, he's gotten in over his head. Lee finds himself a fugitive with a contract on his life.Find out if Lee can outrun his enemies and whether the world can recover from the virus he's helped set loose in The Tiger Key.
