The Pentagon launches a national code Archangel: presumed national security breach by data theft. Limited traces allow finding out who uploaded a number of files, a blogger; he's found water-boarded to death in his bathtub and didn't have the encryption key, but Beale works out who must. A trap brings forward Jennifer Weincroft, actually the girlfriend of petty officer Matt Driscoll, a US Navy encryption expert, who is frustrated never to be allowed on active tour. The team has to protect both against a sinister armed bunch, identified trough shot-down hired men to well-connected Jans Christian Kemp. Meanwhile bluff and blackmail keep ambitious FBI Agent Landon Frisbee's bumbling team at arms-length. Written by
