In this tense political and scientific international thriller, duplicity, deception and doublecrosses abound as Nathan Brooks - a forensic investigator working an odd case in Guatemala - stumbles upon a variety of bewildering clues that seem to indicate that some sort of attack on a large American city is imminent.
As Brooks soon learns, Moroccan militants have conceived a novel false flag operation intended to provoke an extreme American response for regime-changing blowback against their king - a man they despise for his obscenely extravagant lifestyle in one of the world's poorest countries.
A multinational corporation with covert ties to the CIA, aiding the militants, has a much different agenda - a plan to steal the king's massive fortune once he's overthrown.
Brooks and his former girlfriend - a troubled ATF agent with a knack for finding danger - attempt to make sense of the disparate clues and deduce the target before the militants detonate an ingenious bomb.
