eMOTION: Hard Wired is the second book in the Fifth and Dent series.
Marion Dent has given up his old life after failing to fulfill a contract to kidnap a young girl, choosing instead to become her guardian.

Each with reasons of their own, they must find a way to work together to determine if the deaths are eTech-related and put a stop to it all.
