The CIAâ€™s hunt is on for the mastermind of a wave of terrorist attacks. Roger Ferris is the agencyâ€™s man on the ground, moving from place to place, scrambling to stay ahead of ever-shifting events. An eye in the sky â€“ a satellite link â€“ watches Ferris. At the other end of that real-time link is the CIAâ€™s Ed Hoffman, strategizing events from thousands of miles away. And as Ferris nears the target, he discovers trust can be just as dangerous as it is necessary for survival.
