When a sniper kills the lovely woman Nick is walking behind, he can't restrain himself. He tries for the shooter. Bare handed. Even though he fails, it's headline news. Kate wants a follow up story. Nick isn't interested.
The attack proves to be the work of domestic terrorists. And they want Nick dead, for he can identify the sniper. In his efforts to survive, he becomes irrevocably linked with Kate, who is then also slated to die. Their only hope is to uncover the true objectives of this group. And then to thwart them in some way.
Against all odds, they discover exactly what is needed. Records. Irrefutable proof. All of it of incalculable value to anyone seeking more wealth or power.
In this lies a grand dilemma. They must pass this information to someone able to prevent what is planned, and thus save their lives. But who with such power can be trusted to act in the interests of the country, rather than their own?
