Computer security specialist Jonathan Davis's daily routine includes monitoring firewall and intrusion detection logs for a large financial services company in Palm Springs, California. The job is mind-numbing until, like some of his fellow employees, he begins compromising the privacy of others-the very thing he was hired to protect-for his own amusement. It isn't long before Davis comes upon a scandalous e-mail from one of Hollywood's hottest stars. A recovering gambling addict swimming in debt, Davis believes his prayers are answered when he sells the star's e-mail to a gossip magazine for a hefty sum. With his debts paid off, he intends to put the indiscretion behind him-but the magazine wants more and will go to any lengths to get it. As if that isn't enough to keep him up at night, Davis becomes privy to a sinister plot to murder the very celebrity whose secrets he has been selling. With his love life in turmoil, his career in the balance, and his very life on the line, Davis must summon more than his technical expertise to save his girlfriend, her daughter, and Hollywood's elite. Mark Stone's Behind the Screen is a technological thriller that will make anyone think twice before hitting "Send".
