One minute former U.S. Marine Jackson McGuigan is doing his job as a government engineer, the next he is running for his life. In the heart of New York City, Jackson stumbles on a century-old conspiracy of global proportions - and the people pulling the strings are not happy! As Jackson tries to wrap his head around what is going on, he learns that some of those closest to him are involved. Omar Cribb, sadistic strongman and twisted henchman of the conspirators, is determined to pursue him to the death to protect the secret. But who are these people? How far does their power extend? Who can he trust? Before Jackson can figure this out, he must stop Cribb from mounting a ruthless attack on New York City that will kill thousands of people and leave major portions of the City unusable for years - and in the process keep himself alive.
