As he travels to various exotic cities such as Honolulu, Manila, and Hong Kong, he discovers that the cartel is controlled by a sinister artificial intelligence that has already invented a quantum computer, and it can easily break into any encrypted database.
To his horror, Lee learns that the woman agent works for the A.I., and the A.I., named Bot, is also attempting to control his thought processes by a chip implant.

Lee must discover the location of Bot, before the world's databases are destroyed by viruses planted by the evil intelligence. Lee must overcome mind-altering forces and a Hong Kong criminal named Lung. Lee is helped by his father, who has taken form as a hologram, and by the woman agent, Claudia Mars, who agrees to turn against Bot, if Lee can find her kidnapped son, before Bot kills him.
