Our government is populated with a myriad of agencies referred to only by their initials. Within each of these "Alphabet" agencies are countless other agencies, each of them adding to the "Soup."


Three members of an elite, secret team have stumbled upon a mystery. What actually happened while they were on a temporary assignment in Biloxi, Mississippi? Holly remembers the trip to Biloxi one way, but Mark remembers the events entirely differently. And Larry—well Larry can't even remember being there.


There is only one possible explanation—someone has tampered with and/or erased their memories. What could have happened in Biloxi that was so terrible that such extreme measures would be necessary?


The clues: Before Larry's memories were erased, he sent emails to himself, Holly and Mark. Each of the emails contained links to encrypted files. Once those files were decrypted, they would form a puzzle that only the three of them can piece together.


But there is at least one person who is willing to do anything to prevent that puzzle from being assembled. Holly, Mark and Larry race against the clock just to stay alive while attempting to solve the mystery.

It had been seven years since Mark and Holly Hill had left the military and the top-secret team that had used blackmail and other means to convince some very powerful people to make the “correct” decisions. After all those years, memories of those other means still disturbed their sleep. Fortunately, with time, the nightmares had become less frequent, until…


As a civilian, Mark had been writing security software for his employer. What Mark didn’t realize was that someone was using his software to deliver classified material to foreign nationals. The realization came when two government agents knocked on his door and spirited him away in the middle of the night.


Reluctantly, Mark agreed to help discover the identity of the spy who was using his software. Only then would the government officials ignore the fact that he was using military-grade encryption for a civilian application. If he worked fast enough, Mark might even be able to protect Holly’s secret.
