After Harmony's parents died, Richard became a mentor/father figure to her. He worked for the FBI and helped her become an agent. Harmony wanted to be a field agent, but the FBI kept her doing desk work. She wasn't strong with field agent skills. Richard was kidnapped by some Russians who wanted millions deposited in a bank account. The FBI refused to negotiate. Harmony took vacation time with a plan to pay the ransom and free him. She goes to a prison and gets Cole released using forged papers. He was convicted of hacking into the FBI's computer system. Cole was innocent but was framed by a bad FBI agent (Treacher) who stole Cole's software and sold it. Harmony wants Cole to hack into a system to transfer money to the kidnappers' account. They are chased by three goups: the police, men working for Treacher (who wants Cole dead), and the kidnappers (who want to know Harmony's plans).
This felt like one long chase scene. I wasn't drawn into the characters. There was nothing special about the dialogue. Nothing surprised or delighted me. At times I wanted it to be over. Sorry.

Occasionally I've found authors using "too cutesy" names. To the best of my memory, the writing has not been good when I see this. In this story the names were Hackett (computer hacker), Treacher (treacherous bad guy), Swendahl (Svengali - a person with evil intent manipulating another), and to a lesser degree Harmony (whose nickname was Harm). I only mention Harmony because of the others. If she were the only one, I wouldn't criticize it.
