When a bomb explodes inside a Houston high-rise and the governor of Texas goes missing in the ensuing melee, former army ranger Jack "Kell" Kellison and the Omega Force counterterrorism team are called into action. Their mission: infiltrate the activist group suspected of masterminding the bombing, neutralize the threat, and recover the hostage. Yet within moments of meeting his prime suspect, beautiful environmentalist Mori Chastaine, Kell knows she's innocent of the bombing - but definitely guilty of something. Mori has a secret, one she is desperate to hide from Kell and the rest of the world - a secret that binds her to a primal power hungry to assure its future, even at the cost of thousands of innocent human lives. If Mori dares to reveal her true identity, will Kell join her fight? Or will she become his next target?
