Sustained by a deep religious faith, Jason Harrow has built a stable family and become a pillar of principle and patriotism in the Midwest. Then the phone rings, and his past is on the other end of the line. A woman with whom he once shared a life of violence and desire claims her daughter is missing--and Jason is the one man who can find her.Returning to New York City, Jason finds himself entangled in a murderous conspiracy only he can see and only he can stop--a plot that bizarrely links his private passions to the turmoil of a world at war. Hunted by terrorists and by the police, Jason has only hours to unravel an ex-lover's lies and face the unbearable truth: In order to prevent a savage attack on his country, he's going to have to risk his decency, his sanity, and his life.
