Present-day Washington DC. In an election year. Corruption. Terrorist threats. Powerbrokering. Business as usual. Although Internet voting software has existed for years, computer geek Thomas Bridger has created the killer app: the security code that would make it safe for people to vote in political elections using the Internet. Who cares? For starters, the President of the United States, the FBI, and Bridger's father (a status-quo Senator, in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's).
But just having a new election-day toy won't increase voter turnout.
Enter Leesha Dormont, a 'Ghost Walk' tour guide in MLK's Selma, Alabama. A minimum-wage bottom-feeder? Hardly. Seven years ago, Leesha wrote a radical-some say treasonous-document. The first chapter cross-pollinated all over the Internet and fired up more feelings than the Unabomber Manifesto. The twist? No one knows Leesha's the author. Not yet, anyway. And what about the two additional chapters that no one's ever seen? The next presidential election is only a few months away, and it's a race against the calendar. The president and the entire intelligence community are waiting for the next clue-that is, if the election can't be rigged, or their best assassin can't handle the job. And what about the 200,000 people who show up in the nation's capitol to check out the possibilities? Will Bridger and Leesha stay true to their ideals? Will democracy cease to exist? Washington DC and the world are about to find out.
