In the gripping world of “Flame and Deception,” Travis Davis weaves a captivating tale of high-tech espionage and international intrigue. The story centers around Texarkana, a specialized team consisting of tech-savvy experts who work for the National Geospatial Agency. As they uncover a series of alarming events in Dr. Congo, they soon find themselves caught in a race against time to protect the world from a catastrophic technology-driven calamity.

The driving force behind this riveting plot is solar energy, a technology that has seen substantial advancements but remains vulnerable to misuse in the wrong hands. Davis delves into the captivating world of cybersecurity and showcases how solar energy, being heavily reliant on software, can be manipulated to control entire populations. The narrative revolves around the sinister intentions of China, whose ambitious plans involve exerting dominion over all aspects of life, from transportation to food supply chains.
