Detailed book overview
American businessman Peter Hubley lays sprawled across the floor of a Brazilian airport, cappuccino dripping down what remains of his forehead. Within an hour, his killers are dead and their bodies stolen. When an organized crime syndicate claims responsibility for the savage murder, questions are raised and the case is assigned to Special Agent Nikki Benton.
To Benton, a straight-laced FBI veteran, the Hubley case is an unusual and much-anticipated opportunity to prove herself and get out from under the thumb of her misogynistic boss. But she quickly realizes that nothing about it adds up and she may be in over her head. Her instincts prove true when her prime suspect Ben Siebert, a rebellious ex-Marine with a questionable past, is pressing a Glock 27 to her temple.
The two are forced to work together when they learn that everything - the death of the killers, the public's assumption Hubley was hiding something, even the case being assigned to Benton - was part of a carefully orchestrated plan...and that they are the next targets. But to stop a formidable perpetrator intent on killing thousands of innocent people, they must risk everything and reveal the shocking truth behind the Hubley case.
Terrorists had Chicago’s Ogilvie Transportation Center and its 10,000 commuters seconds away from annihilation. Their credibility established, the perps spare Ogilvie but threaten even more devastating consequences unless the FBI kills William T. Knoble, a local attorney with no known criminal ties.
On a timeline and desperate to understand why an obscure, small-time lawyer is the subject of a terrorist demand, the FBI turns to Ben Siebert, a former Marine who two years earlier used highly unconventional tactics to save America from a devastating cyber attack. Siebert resists at first, reluctant to get involved. But when the terrorists kidnap and threaten his son’s life if Knoble isn’t dead in a week, he is forced to find out just how far he’s willing to go to protect his family.
After abducting Knoble to keep his options open, Siebert is a fugitive of the law with a sole objective. In pursuit of his son, Siebert applies years of military training to attack the problem with ruthless and unapologetic determination. But nothing is as it seems, and as Siebert winds through a maze of high-stakes deception and treachery, he learns that his son and Knoble are not the only ones in jeopardy...millions of people’s lives depend on his mission.
