Skyscrapers. Tall, intimidating, a symbol of power to all who stand in the midst of their imposing shadows. Zane Garrison invokes these qualities from his lofty offices high above Crystal City near Washington, D.C.
Cody Walker is a brilliant but impetuous hacker and thief, and his live-in boyfriend, Ray Sharpe, is a former paramilitary operative. Both have settled into new careers as Information Security Officers for Zane Garrison. These two very different men share not only an intimate relationship with each other, but also a bond with Zane reaching above and beyond the call of duty.
As the founder and CEO of Garrison Tech International, Zane has learned the best way to maintain control of his enigmatic corporation is a balanced system of punishment and reward. Not everyone finds Zane's business pursuits or his methods appealing, forcing him to employ men he can fully trust as watchdogs of his company's information assets. To Zane's amusement and Cody's frequent delight, there are times the dogs need leashing, and the hand that feeds is all too willing to take control.
