From the New York Times bestselling author of The Takeover comes a terrifying thriller of corruption and greed at the highest levels of government. . . .
David Mitchell, fast-rising portfolio manager at the exclusive Sagamore Investment Managing Group, has just been handed his future on a golden platter. If all goes according to plan, a struggling plane-manufacturing company will win a coveted government defense contract . . . and David himself will become very, very rich. Gaining the trust of IRS agent Jesse Hayes is a crucial part of the scheme. But the unwitting recruit has troubles of her own. Her boss has been found dead, and incriminating tax files level suspicion at a high-profile senatorial candidate.
As the pieces of an explosive puzzle fall into place, David and Jesse realize they are pawns in a top-secret billion-dollar conspiracy stretching from the frenzy of Wall Street to the darkest corridors of Washington D.C., where a shocking military secret lies hidden.
With tensions mounting, the lines between money and politics, and life and death, become razor-thin. . . .
