He soon runs into his ex, Dr. Holly Pike. She electrifies the room, but all Lassie can think about is how she ran out on him when they were going to get married. Many years have gone by, and so much has changed. However, before Lassie can process his old feelings for her, Dr. Pike's reappearance in his life takes an unexpected turn. When an important figure at UNC is murdered and Lassie shockingly becomes a suspect, he must quickly work to connect the dots between the inside job, the murder, and Dr. Pike's company. Dr. Pike explains that her billion-dollar company, Gimghoul Research Labs, has been the target of anonymous emails alleging fraud. Signs point to a disgruntled researcher. Suddenly propositioned by Dr. Pike with an inside job that Lassie can't turn down—an inside job that will pay him five million dollars to track down the source of the anonymous emails—Lassie soon uncovers a murderous web of corruption.
