Mike and Marge control ePETRO, an oil shipping business with offices in London and New York, but they don't have the same business goals in mind. Marge intends to sell the North Koreans uranium in addition to oil obtained illegally from the government sanctioned Middle East. But Mike may have other plans, mainly, keeping the profits of these sales for himself.
Then there is the shadowy Steven Christopher, who oversees the information runners who are charged with staying off the grid, is working several angles behind the scenes. Steven is the only one trusted by both Marge and Mike, but why?
Do the vast amounts of information and technology available hold humans’ hostage? Do analog communications sidestep your vulnerability in a digital world?
As Juan and Julie Rodríguez send their operatives, Ernesto, Tyler, Summit, Mercedes, Brayson, and George out across the globe to track down these foot soldiers also known as Analog Information Mules, they'll discover the horrible potential treats, and learn about each other along the way.
Julie heads to London to fill the gap undercover inside ePetro, when she finds herself in the center of all the trouble. When Julie disappears, Juan drops everything to find her.
Even with all their information gathering sources and machinery, the R-Group fears she is lost.

What are Readers saying
Kirkus “Astute prose and an unwavering pace energized by first-rate characters and subplots.”
“The action could be considered exciting and visceral, but the antagonists are the selling points for this book, lifting the plot out of multiple perspectives and scene-shifting (the action takes place across four continents).”
“Any lover of thrillers or techno-thrillers will enjoy this book a lot.”
“The clever ingenuity in this book astounds me (the holy man... so quickly creative!)”
What an ultimate thrill ride. It's so well put together, ingenious, and original.
I was blown away by the way the authors constructed this story from beginning to end.
These authors really do write together seamlessly. When I find authors who write together, often I can pick out parts from each one as there is a bit of a difference, but I never would have guessed with this one. A perfectly paired duo.
