When CIA assassin, John Taylor, receives an assignment to eliminate a top ranking U.S. Air Force General, he draws the line, aware he will be on the company’s hit list for knowing about but not carrying out an assignment.
In an attempt to warn the target he is in danger, Taylor becomes entangled in an operation much larger than the assassination of the general. A top-secret military device has been stolen. Although Taylor has no idea what it is, he must find the traitors behind an elaborate plot to not only sell the device to the highest bidder, but to kill the president, who gave Taylor’s boss the orders to assassinate suspected terrorists at will.
He eventually learns the general and his daughter, with whom Taylor has an affair and has come to love, are not at all what they seem. Now, Taylor himself, becomes the hunted and, without knowing whom to trust, he’s on his own to figure out who’s behind the sabotage bombing of an American aircraft carrier, the killing of Army Rangers in Central America, the damaging of an electronic warfare ship by a stealth missile, the theft of the device and, last but not least, who in the hell is trying to kill him.
