The unexpected murder of Compware Games' founder, Sang Woo, sets off a chain of events that plunge the company into turmoil. Amidst the chaos, Regus Patoff takes control of Sang Woo's orders. Though he proves to be a skilled and meticulous manager, his unorthodox management style and enigmatic demeanor put him at odds with the employees.

As the story unfolds, we see events through the eyes of two key characters - Elaine Hayman and Craig Horne. Elaine, who works as Sang Woo's assistant, becomes a creative liaison while Craig is a game coder and developer. Intrigued by Patoff's arrival, they investigate his past and stumble upon a startling discovery - a contract signed with the founder of another company.

Further research reveals a disturbing pattern - Patoff has been a consultant to other companies that have mysteriously lost their founders. Despite this revelation, Patoff's unique ideas show promising results as the company turns its fortunes around.

But as his oddities become more apparent, including his accent and inability to climb stairs, it becomes clear that his methods are not entirely ethical.
