Kyle Rieker returns home in time for a last look at his sister before she is buried. Officially she was murdered along with five other innocent people by a crazy. But Kyle learns she was executed by a professional. When a CIA operative tries to kill him, he knows he is also slated to die, likely for the same reasons his sister did.
The police and private investigators are powerless when confronting the CIA. Yet he must survive, find answers and act accordingly.
He turns to an unusual source for assistance. He collects a team of competent, seasoned professionals with whom he has fought in Special Forces, men who have routinely accomplished combat assignments considered impossible by some.
But there are those among the elite of Los Angeles who have their own plans and the CIA has theirs; a rag-time group of ex-soldiers is not considered a serious threat. Against such opposition, Kyle and every man on the team, knows that this time he may not make it.
