Meet Peter Jones: brilliant, mercurial, he changed the face of an industry and literally invented the portable computer. And Matthew Locke: quintessential company man and marketing genius, he reached the top of New York's corporate ladder while still in his thirties. Both are determined to control Via Computer Inc. - the portable computer company that Jones began in his college dorm, forged out of vision and chutzpah; and, some say, the company he is dangerously close to destroying. Driven more by aesthetic instincts and perfectionism than the bottom line, Peter Jones is consumed by his vision of a better world through technology and doesn't see that his company is sinking fast. As sales drop and deadline after deadline is missed, Via risks losing the cutting edge that made it one of America's most visible and valuable entities. A clash is inevitable. Matthew Locke means to wrest power from Jones and lock the company into a Faustian pact with its largest competitor. As the battle for power escalates, it tests the greed and morality of nearly everyone in the golden-hued valley...and threatens to destroy not only a company but also the lives of these two men. At the center of the storm lies a simple question: What defines a company - its people, its product, or its vision?
