Strength in Numbers
They’re back! In their first adventure, Marc Julian, software billionaire, and Jesse Winchester, hacker extraordinaire, survived the evil plans of the Krom Brothers and Jesse’s first lover, Chip. But Jesse has old debts to pay to Russian gangster Leonid Ivanov. Now Leonid is calling in those debts, demanding that Jesse find a great treasure for him, and a new game is set in motion…
The mysterious “Satoshi,” creator of the cybercurrency Bitcoin, has been hiding $400 million worth of the currency for years. But now, he has chosen to start a quest for the keys to the Hoard, and he who controls the keys controls the fortune. And this will be a quest that will test the strength, the will, and the character of those who pursue it.
But Marc and Jesse aren’t the only ones on the hunt, as old enemies resurface to try and beat them to the treasure… And even if they reach it first, they must ask themselves – do they really want to give a Russian gangster $400 million to pursue his deadly enterprises? And what would be the consequences if they don’t?
The pursuit will take them through the museums of Tokyo, the streets of Buenos Aires, and the coast of Mexico, in a desperate and dangerous race to keep the fortune in digital gold from the hands of all their enemies…
Have the characters write a letter to the them of five years ago.
Dear “Old Marc”: Surprise! Time travel is real, at least real enough for me to drop you a line from the future. I know that you’re in a dark place now, emotionally. You invested a lot of trust in Walt – and, let’s face it, some part of you always knew that trust was misplaced. Your raging desire clouded your judgment. Hey, you’re a man – that shit happens every day. But the upside is that at least you’ve learned how to suss out competent, trustworthy people in your business life.
And not to spoil anything for you, but…if you ever meet another guy to whom you’re as powerfully attracted as you were to Walt, well, just use that same radar on that guy. Judge him the way you judge your best employees, your most trustworthy allies. Don’t think with your dick, in other words. Well, think with your dick, but in consultation with your head this time, okay?
Dear “Old Jesse”: Congratulations on surviving prison! A new life awaits you. I know you know it’s not going to be easy. The Feds are watching you and the old scams and cons aren’t going to work for you. But I think you’re bored with those anyway, right? I think you can see that there are more interesting games to be played…games that are completely (okay mostly) legal, and profitable.
And you’re not alone in your situation, you know. There are others who’ve found themselves in trouble for being too clever by half. And they need you, and you need them. Some of them will be your new teammates, and some will be clients. And some of those clients may be a little, um, prickly at first, but if you stick with him, er I mean them, I think you’ll find yourself in a very rewarding relationship, in more than one sense. That’s it! Smell the flowers, enjoy your freedom, and I’ll see you in five!
Marc smiled as he made clinking sounds in the galley of his private jet. He already had the black slacks on, so it was the work of a moment to take off his polo shirt and slip into the white epauletted button-down short-sleeve shirt of a steward. The wings were already attached to the lapels, and he’d even had a name tag made.
“Here you go, sir,” he said as he handed Jesse his drink on a tray. Jesse was already involved in something on his phone, and he absentmindedly reached for it.
Then he paused, sensing that something had changed. He looked up to see Marc dressed as an airline steward, his eyes dancing with heat.
Marc didn’t smile as he said, “Is there anything else I can get you, sir?”
Jesse swallowed. “Maybe a warm blanket.”
Marc took the drink from his hand. He pressed a button on the side of Jesse’s chair.
“The seat fully reclines into a bed, sir. Let me make you comfortable.”
As the seat back flattened and the base lifted Jesse’s feet up, Marc pushed another button, and the chair’s arms lowered out of the way, which gave him room to straddle Jesse’s hips.
He put his hands on Jesse’s chest, and Jesse reached up to finger his collar. “How did you earn those wings, steward?”
Marc idly stroked Jesse’s hand where it lingered on the wings. “Oh, those, sir? For achieving membership in the Mile High Club. Are you a member?” Marc began to grind his ass against Jesse’s crotch, feeling the transformation below his slacks.
“You know, I am not. I’ve never been invited to join.”
Marc leaned in to whisper in his ear. “Let me be the first to welcome you, then.”
