When their new engine design, Vulcan, is sold to the competition, internal investigations ensue.

All leads run cold, until another betrayal occurs within the company, this time resulting in the murder of a security guard. Now the police are on the case and determined to catch the killer, but Mike finds himself the subject of investigation once again… His knowledge of the company procedures, access to areas involved in the crime and his lifestyle are raising suspicions with the detective in charge of the case. However, no solid evidence is available for them to arrest him. Deciding to take matters into his own hands, he uncovers the true culprit. Someone he could never have believed capable of such acts.
