     CHAPTER ONE Five years from now: the security of the internet has been totally destroyed. Secrets are no longer sent over the web, they're 
entrusted to armed couriers called "Ledger Men," like human punching-bag Jack McGinnis. He's got a gun in one hand and a briefcase 
handcuffed to the other. Danger lurks around every corner, and Jack has to watch his back—because he had a part in the cyber attack that 
changed the world. Get in on the ground floor of this new ongoing series and thrill as we slam Jack's fist into the faces of spies, mercs,
 fascists, and eventually less punchable adversaries like a very grumpy artificial intelligence.
