Operative: Andrew Britton
Ex-CIA operative Ryan Kealey has finally found some semblance of peace, settling down in Baltimore and developing a friendship with psychologist Allison Dearborn. His newfound calm is violently disrupted when a charity event is rocked by a terrorist attack. After the dust settles, the CIA deputy director recruits Kealey to investigate. Kealey's findings are shocking: All of the terrorists involved in the Baltimore attack were officially prisoners of the U.S. government, supposedly incarcerated in some of the nation's most notorious prisons. All signs point to a former government program run by Canadian psychologist Simon Cosgrove, who has since gone rogue. With this chilling information, Kealey, battling his own personal demons, is launched on a worldwide quest to track down Cosgrove before he can launch another, far more devastating attack.
