Jack McClure has had a troubled life. His dyslexia always made him feel like an outsider. He escaped from an abusive home as a teenager, living by his wits on the streets of Washington, D.C. It wasn't until he realized that dyslexia gave him a unique ability to see the world in a different way that he found success, using his newfound strength to become one of the top ATF agents in the Bureau.
For months, Jack has been desperately trying to cope with the loss of his daughter and the subsequent breakup of his marriage. Then he receives a call from his old friend Edward Carson, who is just weeks away from taking the reins as president of the United States. Carson's daughter, Alli, has been kidnapped, and because Emma McClure was once Alli's best friend, Carson turns to Jack, the one man he can trust to go to any lengths to find his daughter and bring her home safely.
Faith, redemption, and intrigue play off one another as the investigation leads Jack onto the path of a dangerous and calculating man. Someone whose actions are as cold as they are brilliant. A man whose power and reach are seemingly infinite. A man who has affected Jack's life and country in more ways than anyone could ever imagine.
