A Collision Between Privacy and National Security! Cirrus Corporation is a hot new cloud computing company that also is covertly running a top secret operation for the Defense Intelligence Agency called Project Ferret, which electronically scours private data in “the cloud” to root out terrorists. When a mysterious person called “The Truth” accuses Cirrus of financial fraud, the company hires Ryan Thorne, a corporate spy with a checkered past, to conceal “Project Ferret” from an ambitious female lawyer who is investigating the fraud.
But when Ryan discovers that the project is being manipulated for political blackmail, he has to decide whether to continue deceiving her or to expose the conspiracy. After a lifetime of lies, Ryan finally faces the truth as he testifies before a Senate Committee on Investigations, which is probing the historic conflict between the right to privacy and national security.
