When Kris Storm, the new manager of an elite cybersecurity team at Illuminate, a global internet powerhouse, receives an order to sift through web traffic to further the presidential ambitions of the mayor of New York, she stomps out the door in protest. But her staunch belief in the protection of an individual's right to privacy is tested when her boss abruptly shuts down the project a few weeks later. By then, a disturbing trail of terrorist activity, albeit circumstantial, has emerged: Brighton Beach, bitcoins, identity theft, liquid explosives, jihad, Boston Marathon. Now, Kris must decide whether to dig deeper, or stay constitutionally safe on the sidelines. Her hesitancy, however, is costly. By the time Kris and her partner, street savvy FBI agent Jim Bright, finally identify the bombers and their target, Yankee Stadium, they must speed to the Bronx.

Excerpt from The Fourth Amendment:
Kris sprinted down the plaza, passing by revelers downing beers on the patio of the Hard Rock Café, while Jim headed for the Stadium. A uniformed cop signaled her to slow down but he did not move to stop her.
Crossing one hundred sixty-first street, Kris reached the steps leading up to the elevated platform for the 4 train. She was halfway up when she heard a roar swelling from deep inside the Stadium, the banks of bright lights on its roof casting a warm glow on the Bronx skyline. She froze, pulling out her phone to check ESPN. The game was going on. Life was still normal. The Yankees were batting: Ripcurl Reilly in the on deck circle.
A train rumbled overhead, burrowing deeper into the Bronx. Wrong way. Kris wanted to head in the other direction, towards Manhattan. She started back up the steps again but then stopped. Turken lived in Brighton Beach. She remembered the subway ride home after her disagreement with Jim. Turken and his accomplice would likely head back home on the D train, which ran underground, not the 4. She spun around jumping two steps at a time to reach the street. The stairs leading down to the D were right in front of her.
Kris cast one last glance at the gleaming edifice across the street before beginning her descent. She had just reached the fifth step when another wave of sound rose from the Stadium.
