Soon Maggie Costello, a seasoned Washington operator and stubbornly principled, discovers an inside plot to kill the President - and faces the ultimate moral dilemma.

But Monroe's investigation quickly makes him some shadowy enemies, who kidnap his wife and hold her hostage in Crown Heights. Desperate to find the link between the killings and to save his wife, he enlists his college sweetheart, TC, an eccentric artist and Kabbalah expert.
