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.
