When General Griffin North, a highly decorated African American icon, is killed in a suspicious plane crash, a special commission deems it a tragic accident caused by mechanical error. Certain the general was assassinated and keenly aware that high-ranking officials would stop at nothing to keep a black man from a possible vice presidential nomination, Mollie Smith of the Criminal Investigation Division vows to keep the investigation alive. When Mollie is found murdered, her protégé and close friend Rachel Collins is left to pick up the scent of conspiracy. With the help of Mollie's brother Logan, the head of the FBI team tracking domestic terrorists, Rachel comes head to head with the Engineer, an ingenious and ruthless killer whose sole goal is to cut short her inquiry - and her life.
