Imprisoned in an asylum and abandoned by the government he once served, war veteran Parsons Prefontaine escapes to avenge the murder of his best friend and brother in arms. Violence to him is like a bullet to a gun. Leland Prefontaine, methodical and introspective, has only eight days to derail the budget hearings that fund the covert operations that robbed him of the past fifteen years of his life. Each man seeks his own justice. They are bound by two horrific incidents; one when Leland was nine years old and a second when Parsons served in war-torn Somalia. A pair of brash covert ops vie to take Prefontaine down; an obstinate reporter seeks to know his secrets, while a forgotten war veteran holds the key to solving the puzzle. The two Prefontaines are relentless forces pulling in opposite directions. But, only one can prevail...because Parsons and Leland are the same man.
