The Machine Series follows Mev Hayes and Jack Kane as they discover and master the dark world of computer hacking in the last days of the cold war and the early days of the Internet, tangling with the law enforcement, the espionage community, private companies, foreign powers, all of whom compete in the burgeoning world of cyberspace. And as the technologies mature, and the stakes get higher, Mev and Jack must get both more cunning and more connected.

The first novel in the series, Machine Learning, follows Mev, a naive graduate student, as she becomes ensnared in a conflict between an MIT professor using a computer hacking program to commit espionage, his KGB paymasters, the FBI investigating him, and a secret government agency who wants the software for themselves, becoming a master hacker in her own right to survive and outwit them all.

Subsequent books will chronicle the rise of the Internet and encryption technologies, search, social media, and all of the ways in which they change how we live, work, and wage war.
