A Texas university professor, quietly working in her animal husbandry field of study, finds her unconventional communication techniques have put her in the cross-hairs of multiple interested parties that feel they have a license to confiscate it. Her applied research of nanotechnology, coupled with hybrid programming methods has gotten her more attention than she wanted. In the cross-hairs of several military powers the question becomes: what does research to improve animal husbandry to boost global food supplies have in common with next generation high-tech military communications?
In competing for superior military power around the globe, it's not larger weapons or greater numbers of soldiers that top their wish lists. Instead, it's leveraging the latest technology improvements including nanotechnology, dynamic programming algorithms, and drones, working together to build the next generation of military communications. The race is on to be the military winner except some cyber terrorist have dealt themselves into the agenda. What challenges do these world powers need to overcome before emerging as the military winner?
Keith Austin Avery, engineer and U.S. defense department contractor, is on the hunt for new technology and leading-edge applications. His research draws the attention of a powerful terrorist group, with traumatic consequences for him and his subcontractor Eilla-Zan Marshall. Can they be forced to reveal the key confidential military plans, or is all this information already on the Dark Net?
The R-Group is engaged to locate these terrorists and their captives. Clarifying all data and using sophisticated analytics, they uncover more than they planned. Can they prove government corruption of a world power? Are secrets being kept from those who can help? Most importantly, how many will lose their lives in the fight to perfect advanced battlefield communications?
Jacob and Petra work closely with a powerful and talented team to uncover the latest technological inroads that can take best advantage of nanotechnology. Technology programs they uncover puts them in a dire race against time to save lives.

We have several animals highlighted in the series, but Franklin was introduced in this volume.
Su Lin is a key character in this story that explores chip technology, animal husbandry, and some of the relevant research projects on wearable versus embedded technologies. We leverage Franklin for this and his amazing relationship with Su Lin.
Let us know if you enjoy this match up and how they progress through the story to its hopefully surprising conclusion. We would enjoy your feedback!
The Enigma Ignite
Franklin was his typical docile self, and as usual, he was interested in the goings on of others. Some of his social skills were unpolished, but his friendly nature made up for the minor indiscretions he committed now and again. While he was part of the group, he just didn’t quite fit in with the others and so he tended to wander off muttering to himself. He always became alert and very attentive when Su Lin came into view. Her voice was soothing to his ears, and he seemed to hang on every word she offered. Theirs was a unique relationship of give and take, but that was to be expected from a research animal, specifically a 135 kilo pig.
