Todd Belknap, a field agent for Consular Operations, is cut loose from the agency after a job gone wrong. But when his best friend and fellow agent is abducted abroad and the government refuses to step in, Belknap decides to take matters into his own hands.
 
Meanwhile, Andrea Bancroft learns she's about to inherit six million dollars from a cousin she never met--with one condition: She must sit on the board of the Bancroft family foundation. Having been estranged from her father's family for most of her life, Andrea is intrigued.

In a series of devastating coincidences, Andrea and Belknap come together to form an uneasy alliance if they are to uncover the truth behind "Genesis"--before it is too late.
