A young paralegal is brutally killed. A homeless Iraq war veteran has been caught with the murder weapon and the victim's belongings--and he can't remember what happened... Jason Kolarich has been asked by the young man's aunt to defend him. It seems like a standard insanity defense based on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder--until Kolarich realizes that his client is actually innocent. The victim had been working a case of her own, following a trail of paper and money that connected international terrorists to corporate America, where there are those who want to teach the U.S. government a lesson. Kolarich knows finding the true murderer is the key to exposing the conspiracy. As time grows short for both his client and thousands of innocent Americans, he races to find a trained killer and uncover the details of the attack. But Kolarich soon discovers that the game has already been rigged--and that he himself is about to become the next target...
