Chris Wolff is a math savant and accountant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance sleeper assassin for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s CED (Crime Enforcement Division) starting to close in on him, Wolff takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian un-cooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
