: VERACITY is a contemporary techo-thriller set in Silicon Valley. A team of five young geeks invent an incredible device that may change all of society for the better. Sanjay, whose brilliant programming and vision was the seed for the device, hopes to bring his family from India to fill the foreclosed mansion he has purchased which at present is the team's laboratory. Tooky is a hardware genius with the CB handle he resembles, Hobit39. Algorithms and advice are provided by Rylin, a cynical thirty year old prep school throwback. Wahid is a quiet Iranian immigrant whose talent for adaptation and acquisition supplies the team's hardware needs. The team's newest member, Dydee, is described by a friend as beautiful of body and spirit with a mind of her own. She has written code that is key to perfecting the device, however the code is already patented by her employer. Ignoring the ethical and legal issues, the team uses the device to rake in money playing poker. When they realize their error, it is too late. They are under surveillance and their phones are tapped but it is no benign government agency doing so. A sinister force is willing to kill for the device. When Dydee learns that Sanjay has been kidnapped and possibly murdered, she contacts the only person who can help, a young man she spurned eight years ago.
