Dark times have befallen Hollywood Jake Donovan and his unit. They're still struggling to recover from the nightmarish Black Diamond case when the Attorney General calls on Donovan. Terrorists have attacked the president's helicopter, and the assailants must be found out. But, before he can close in on the suspects, the government inexplicably shuts him down-leading Donovan to suspect that something much more sinister is at work behind the veils of power. When the Broken Wings' wealthy backer asks the team to investigate the whereabouts of her missing niece, Donovan realizes that the new case may lead right back to the case he just lost-and into the nexus of a murderous conspiracy that threatens the security of the entire nation.
