Joshua Ryan, the young retired lawyer is again thrown into a legal and deadly maelstrom. A billion dollar merger may be causing the deaths of the only people who can stop the merger, the senior employees of Comtel International. Comtel had lost a class action suit brought on by several senior employees for using chemicals that were harmful to the employees' safety. Ryan teams up with his private investigator and father- in-law, Yehuda Ben Zvi and his former mentor, Samuel Waterman to unearth the reasons behind the deaths of those same Comtel senior employees involved in the class action suit. Facing them is a United States Senator who started Comtel and who still owns a large percentage of the shares and his son, the president and CEO of Comtel, Jack Evans. Ryan and his team unravel the mysterious deaths of those ten senior employees along with struggling through the financial maze that reminds one not only of the Enron and WorldCom debacles but also the multi-billion dollar deals that are so popular in today's financial world.
