Falina Redding accidentally sees a computer readout she shouldn't. The codes could cripple three quarters of her boss Amos Armat's illegal operations. So naturally, his deadly enemy Morgan Velosi wants those codes - so much that he has Falina kidnapped and taken to his private pleasure city of Sinaloa, where memory expert Carl Morphus will obtain the codes. Armat can't touch her there, so Armat offers the Earth Defense Directorate an unusual trade: if they can rescue Falina, he'll turn himself and evidence of his illegal operations over to them. But why is he so invested in the life of one employee?
