Blake Hudson is a justice department attorney who occupies one of the most converted positions in Washington, D.C. But after a series of attacks on American soil and a bad court ruling that could debilitate the government’s ability to protect the nation, Hudson is assigned new responsibilities in the main Justice building.
A small, clandestine group meets on this dimply lit, concealed level unknown to most Justice Department employees. Led by an introverted CIA analyst, Hudson finds himself inserted into a group of superstar intelligence and military operatives whose ostensible mission— Operation Scavenger Hunt— is to fight terror with the freedom to bypass bureaucratic hurdles. Hudson becomes skeptical of the operation as members begin to break laws until, with no forewarning or explanation, the group disbands, and he finds himself the scapegoat.
Transformed from hunter to hunted, Hudson tried to piece the puzzle together as those associated with the disbanded operation begin suffering strange deaths. Not knowing whom to trust, Hudson searches for answers… fighting to stay alive.
