A home invasion and murder will draw a crowd in any neighborhood, but not usually the Feds. But this wasn’t just any violent crime. Quite the contrary: this is just the tip of an iceberg that hides a chilling and far-reaching conspiracy.
Former FBI agents Josh Hart and Rachel Voss head the investigation that uncovers a string of seemingly accidental deaths. Then, in a quiet Boston suburb. the seven-month-old daughter of a Gulf War vet is inexplicably targeted. Big mistake! The child’s parent, Caitlin McCandless, possesses combat training and knowledge of a shocking secret, and she’ll need both to save her child.
As Voss and Hart search for answers and seek to help McCandless, they discover that there are those in their own organization who will do anything to derail the investigation. Shockingly, someone is waging a war against children, and the motive is as startling as it is horrifying.
