However, the theft appears to the initial move in a large corporate conspiracy within the immensely powerful corporation of eighteenth century England. Now, in order to save his family and friends from the reach of Jerome Cobb, Weaver is required to infiltrate the guarded corporation, navigate the warring factions, and unravel a secret plot involving foreign spies, government operatives, and corporate rivals. As the nation’s security and millions of pounds fall at stake, Weaver finds himself stuck between hidden agendas, unexpected allies, and daring enemies.
