As head of California's task force on narcotics and organized crime, Brock Andrews as earned his reputation as a tough, no-nonsense law enforcement agent. But it's Brock's superior who's about to become his greatest adversary. Her name: Alison Andrews, First Assistant United States Attorney...and Brock's wife.
Publicly, Alison and Brock Andrews are a dynamic power couple at the pinnacle of federal law enforcement. Privately, their marriage is on the rocks. And the growing tension between them has only worsened with Alison's release of Edward Nelson, the disgraced CIA employee and international arms dealer Brock arrested months earlier in the biggest bust of his career. What Brock doesn't know is that Alison has recruited Nelson as her most important undercover operator in a plot to ensnare a ring of domestic terrorists smuggling arms overseas. Nelson, a master manipulator skilled at deadly games, has a plan of his own—to turn Alison's undercover operation inside out, unleash a secret army of heavily armed militiamen, and target Washington's high-powered political arena for a terrorist act of unparalleled proportions.
As Brock tries to uncover Nelson's insidious plan, he quickly finds himself deep in a morass of shifting loyalties, outright betrayals, and hidden agendas that leave him running out of trust—and time.
