After World War II and the emergence of the United States as the leading world power, one man was chosen to create an agency known as the Cellar. The Cellar polices all the other government agencies: CIA, FBI, ATF, DEA, etc. With its founder and long-time patriarch on his deathbed, a successor has been chosen: Hannah Masterson. Her first task may be the most harrowing the Cellar's agents have ever faced.Deep in the forests of Kentucky, a girl is being held captive.In Oklahoma, a preschool teacher is murdered in front of her students.In the panhandle of Florida, a college undergrad is kidnapped from a nightclub.These seemingly unrelated crimes trigger an intense investigation. Cellar operatives Gant and Neeley, along with profiler Susan Golden, must track down those responsible. But these are not ordinary criminals. They are a highly trained Special Forces sniper team, and their crimes are part of an intricate plan of revenge. Crisscrossing the United States as Masterson calls the shots from up high, the Cellar operatives soon find themselves being targeted. Someone else is behind this, someone who knows the ultra top-secret Cellar's tactics all too well.And that is only the tip of the iceberg. Underneath this web of death, deceit, and revenge lies an even more shocking crime - a conspiracy that powerful men will sacrifice their lives - and the lives of their families - to protect.
