Detective Michael Bennett is about to take on the most
sinister challenge of his career. The nation has fallen
into mourning after the unexpected death of a beloved
former first lady, and the most powerful people in the
world gather in New York for her funeral. Then the
inconceivable occurs. Billionaires, politicians, and
superstars of every kind are suddenly trapped within one
man's brilliant and ruthless scenario.
Bennett--father of ten--is pulled into the fray. As the
danger escalates, Michael is hit with devastating news.
After fighting for many years, his wife has succumbed to a
terrible disease. As New York descends into chaos, he has
lost the great love of his life and faces raising his ten
devastated children alone--and rescuing 34 hostages.
Day after day, Bennett confronts the most ruthless man he
has ever dealt with, a man who kills without hesitation and
counters everything the NYPD and FBI throw at him with
impunity. As the entire world watches and the tension boils
to a searing heat, Bennett has to find a way out--or face
responsibility for the greatest debacle in history.
