Maria Haymeyer has an IQ of 250, once posed for a Playboy "Girls of Mensa" feature, and has invented a radical new design for a warplane computer game she calls "LUCI" - short for Light Ultra Chip Intelligence. But someone has stolen her idea, and converted it to bid for a multi-million Joint Strike Fighter contract with the Pentagon.
Terry Watson has a highly successful front as a venture capitalist. During the Gulf War he flew a Stealth Darkwing. He also possesses another ultra-secret talent that makes him a potential but unwilling ally in Maria Haymeyer's fight to get "LUCI" back . . .
