A divorced single mom, she looks forward to steady promotion so she can afford to keep her deaf son, Dash, in the special care he needs. Evelyn’s plans hit the rails when she discovers a number of whistle-blowers and journalists have died recently in suspicious circumstances. Evelyn feels she has to act, but the evidence suggests her own boss, NSA Director Theodore Anders, is behind the deaths. 

Anders’ secret, overriding objective is to collect and collate all private data from everywhere on Earth using the ultra-secret program God’s Eye. Anders believes unrestricted surveillance is the only way to protect America and keep her citizens safe. He’ll go to any lengths to keep God’s Eye secret.
