Products get recalled, companies fail, industries die. When that happens, someone else is waiting to pick up the pieces and make a profit. That's not always an accident. Stad gets paid to dismantle competition. One month he's crippling safety mechanisms on planes and the next he's planting reports about brake failures for a car manufacturer. The month after that he's poisoning the spinach crop or tainting children's toys with lead or planting fake fingers in the salads at a fast food franchise. He just completes the orders given to him and collects a large check. He was going through the motions until Nikki disrupted it all. She makes him rethink everything and when a client requests taking drastic action to squash a competitor, he has to decide what's best for his employer, his future and the lives impacted by his choice.
