Six months of jobhunting and I couldn't get hired to save my life, so I accepted this mystery offer with CSI.

The job was weird: carry a hot-shot computer (Freddy) around Europe, hoping a slippery mastermind (Nicolai Polenkov) would make a grab for it. Since he'd been the chief of a parapsychology lab, the grab might not be physical. Sounds crazy, but Polenkov had been robbing them blind in Europe without break-ins or hacking.

Freddy's programmed to detect patterns in my neural functions which would indicate Polenkov had developed practical ESP.

Jeannette warned me about Polenkov, but did I listen? Nah. I was too desperate.
