A CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, and his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There's just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted.

The clock begins ticking when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political asylum seeker sets in motion a deadly chain of events.

The United States faces a devastating attack, and America's new president must turn to covert counter-terrorism operative Scot Harvath to help plan and carry out two of the most dangerous operations in the country's history.

Code-named 'Gold Dust' and 'Blackbird,' they are shrouded in absolute secrecy as either of them, if discovered, will constitute an act of war.
