Worlds that don't touch: a stodgy, mega law firm and an urban strip club, the Mob, the CIA - and a quantum physics lab. Young Eben Burnham, a science buff and shy, first-year lawyer in a cut-throat Wall Street law firm, tries to represent start-up nanotech companies but he doesn't anticipate that any of these worlds will come into play. that his first client's quantum-physics product will have revolutionary secret code-breaking abilities of interest to both the CIA and the Mob, that his money guy might be penniless, that an egomaniacal and incompetent senior partner and a variety of Brooklyn street thugs and strippers will land on his plate -- or that his dream will lead to his own kidnapping.
