And Paxton, with his all-access security credentials, might just be her meal ticket.As Paxton and Zinnia’s agendas place them on a collision course, they’re about to learn just how far the Cloud will go to make the world a better place.To beat the system, you have to be inside it.
I rue the day when we cannot take a step outside and when everything we need is delivered to our door! This book is a truth I hope never happens. A good read with a lot of thought provoking issues.
