FBI Special Agent Jay Fletcher is an agency hacker who can use computers to find out anything about anyone - but her failure to respect proper channels gets her bounced out of Washington, D.C. to an unexciting arson detail in Sante Fe. Bored, she keeps her computer skills sharp by following an ongoing investigation into Las Vegas's own serial killer. Jay's diversion turns into online terror when she discovers that the murderer, with his 20-year history of grisly crimes, is hooked into a secret network of criminals like himself who play an all-too-realistic computer simulation game. As Jay's recreational hacking turns into a personal quest, she abandons the accepted boundaries of Bureau procedure and due process. With her former colleagues in close pursuit, she and the killer move inexorably toward a shattering confrontation.
