An illegal police wiretap reveals an assassination plot targeted at Faron Sears, the wealthy, brilliant, and charismatic head of a cyber-based global empire, a black ex-con who has traveled up America's success ladder from the Chicago ghetto to the rank of favored presidential contender and major political visionary. Veteran FBI Inspector Dalton Cole, young black FBI Special Agent Sallie Pickett, and battle-scarred D.C. homicide detective Nick Sherman are drafted to protect Sears. Their mandate requires them to stop a brutal assassin who is racing toward his mark along a web of blood stretching from Lexington to Los Angeles, Idaho to Chicago, New York to Washington, D.C. Complicating their already impossible job are two secrets only they know: one of Faron's inner circle is a traitor, and their own superiors in America's justice machine are fueled by a secret agenda. Cole, Pickett, and Sherman forge a treacherous alliance with Faron, who's out to revolutionize the system they have been sworn to serve. As they scramble against the clock to stop political horror, they find their personal hearts electrified with forces sparked by this enigmatic leader.
