Sam Madison and Marti Monroe are ex-FBI agents. A lawyer contacts them about finding a missing man who they classify as a security risk. The job sounds suspicious, since the unknown client didn’t go through the FBI to find the man. They decide to find the missing man and then find out why he is a security risk. When they do find him, he is clutching a laptop computer. They find he is not a security risk; he is a programmer. What is on the laptop is the problem - a sophisticated wiretapping program called Pandora’s Box. It targets a specific list of telephone numbers and then it prints out their conversations.
Three men eliminate the programmer, but Sam and Marti know enough to go on the hunt to find out who is behind the wiretapping. And, they have the programmer’s laptop. While they don’t know who all of the targeted telephone numbers belong to, one they do figure out. And, that changes the case.
It becomes a desperate hunt, to not only find who is behind the wiretapping, but also shut the scheme down. What they do find surprises them.
