Cullen Pulaski is part of a consortium in negotiations with China to form a trade agreement that will greatly benefit the US. When other members of the consortium begin to die, Cullen thinks it is much more than just coincidence. Fearing that the members are being murdered to stop the venture, Cullen puts together a team of experts to investigate his suspicions.
Key members of the team of experts are FBI profiler, Madison Harper, who also happens to be Cullenís goddaughter, and Gabriel Roarke a top CIA operative who has a past with Cullen as well. Madison brings computer expert Harrison Blake on board and Gabriel taps his friends Payton Reynolds and Nigel Ferris to join the team. Cullen wants Madison and Roarke to jointly be in charge of the team of investigators and neither is too keen on sharing lead member duties. When other members of the consortium suddenly die, the two must put aside their differences and work together to find out what is behind all these deaths.
As the team searches for clues, they begin to find more questions than answers and the body count continues to mount. Will they be able to find the answers before the killer accomplishes his agenda?
