When controversial US presidential candidate Dale Victor is killed in a plane explosion along with hundreds of passengers, it appears to be a clear-cut case of terrorism. The suspect has even confessed to the bombing. But as criminal barrister Michael Devlin is about to discover, everything is not as it seems. Assigned to investigate the bombing, intelligence agent Joe Dempsey also quickly suspects there are other forces at work. But who would have wanted Victor out of the way – and would be willing to commit mass murder to do it? As the evidence begins to mount, everything seems to point to the very top of the US government. And now someone is determined to stop Dempsey and Devlin from discovering the truth. At any cost. With countless more lives on the line, Dempsey must find a way to prove who’s pulling the strings, and free the White House from the deadly grip that has taken hold of power.
