When Gideon Davis, ex-international peacemaker, is approached by a slippery crystal meth addict with information about an impending terrorist attack, even though his career with the government are over, something about the man's story makes him sit up and listen. Calling on Nancy Clement, his old FBI colleague, Gideon decides to hand the evidence over to new SS boss, Ray Dahlgren. But when Dahlgren refuses to take Gideon seriously, he is left with only one option - to launch his own investigation.
Enlisting the help of his brother, Tillman, to infiltrate Colonel Jim Verhoven's white supremacist group, which may be involved, Gideon is thrown into the thick of a revenge plot designed not only to overthrow the government but bring an end to democracy itself.
But when things get messy and the brothers are forced to play along with Verhoven's plan in order to avoid detection, they'll need Nancy's help if they are to slot the final piece of the puzzle into place and prevent disaster.
