Although seriously wounded, America is slowly attempting to recover while continuing to combat terrorists and other unknown forces. Boston, Dallas, Denver, and several other major cities have suffered devastating losses. Nuclear warheads had been detonated in Boston and Denver resulting in the murder of many members of Congress, including the Speaker of the House, National Security Adviser, and countless others. President Mitchell is still recovering from his kidnapping and the death of his wife. While operating with limited staff and congressional support, he is doing his best to save his country, the United States, from total destruction. American blood has been spilled and the country wants revenge.
Meanwhile, Davin Pierce and Josh Randal, two near-retiring CIA field operatives, are called in to assist in the recovery of a stolen, highly classified, portable hard drive containing information that could start World War III if the encryption was broken. With the assistance of some high tech equipment and trained agents from multiple organizations, Davin Pierce and Josh Randal dive head first into the search only to discover it went deeper than expected. Life in the slow lane of running covert operations from behind a desk has just changed lanes and gone ballistic.
