Donovan Rourke, a CIA Special Agent, discovers that a man named Katill will assassinate the world's eight most powerful leaders at the G8 Summit in Brussels in three days. The president asks Donovan to handle G8 security. Donovan agrees-but reluctantly. His wife was murdered there, and he blames himself. In Brussels, he sees the leaders are walking into the assassin's trap-and that it's too late to save them.
Donovan Nash is a man under siege, and this time it’s personal. Eco-Watch, the premier scientific research organization he founded, is being blamed for a series of violent eco-atrocities that ignite protests around the world. Behind the attacks is Garrick Pearce, a man from Donovan’s past, who is bent on a ruthless vendetta. Garrick has promised that after he annihilates Eco-Watch, he’ll murder everyone close to Nash. Recoiling from the damage, Donovan enlists the help of Erica, a woman who claims she has information Donovan needs, but her knowledge makes her a marked woman. Running from trained killers, the FBI and even his own organization, Donovan races from southern California to British Columbia, then finally to Alaska where he joins Eco-Watch personnel and desperately tries to stop what promises to be the worst eco-atrocity in history. With his world in tatters and everything he built seemingly destroyed, Donovan is forced to make one last desperate gamble to stop Garrick and silence the man forever—a roll of the dice that may very well cost Nash his life.
