Besides being a Paladin, D.J. Claybourne is also a legendary hacker known as Knightwalker. D.J. may have met his match when a hacker who has been playing cybertag with him manages to breach the Paladins’ security and download a top-secret history. Reggie Morrison’s job is to track down hackers — and she is the best at her job. But finding Knightwalker has been a real challenge. And having him turn up at her door is highly disconcerting. D.J. is attracted to Reggie’s guts and skills, but he knows that she may be in serious danger for breaching the Paladin site. He is proven right when Reggie is kidnapped by corrupt workers from a Regent headquarters. Now D.J. is in a race against time to save her from a world she never dreamed existed.
