Suicide bombers are coming to America's heartland. Their targets: our most precious and vulnerable assets, our children. Following the most terrifying lead of his life, CIA Director Kirk McGarvey traces the threat to a terrorist known as Khalil. But upon further investigation, he is convinced that Khalil and the Saudi playboy prince Abdul Hasim ibn Salman are the same man. The White House wants nothing to do with McGarvey's assumptions; accusing a Saudi prince of such a heinous plan will surely strain the delicate political balance between the United States and the Saudis, always thought to be allies as well as our major oil suppliers. But McGarvey refuses to let politics stand in the way of his stopping Khalil, even if it means that the president of the United States will call him a traitor, even if it means he must resign as director of the CIA to pursue the terrorist, and even if it means his meddling will lead to the kidnapping and brutal beating of his own wife.
