Take Billy Monroe, a divisive candidate for mayor of Washington, D.C.; his ex-wife Sharon Hays, an ambitious TV reporter who would exploit Monroe and anyone else to get an anchor desk; Angela Gomez, Monroe's campaign manager who is in love with him and will do anything to see him elected; and Art Cochran, a veteran cop who hates Monroe's liberal politics. Mix in Ellen Mercer-Ryan who fled an abusive husband years ago and lives in fear of him; Jack Fenton, her husband, a New York police sergeant still seeking revenge for Ellen leaving him; and Tony Caputo, who loves Ellen and supports Monroe's opponent. And you have all the ingredients for Nick Mercante's latest mystery.
After Ellen finds the courage to divorce Fenton, he secretly goes to Washington on a mission of murder, while Tony hires Nick to find ways to protect her. Things heat up when there is a bomb explosion and murder at a Monroe campaign rally, followed by a shooting at a rally for his opponent, and a suicide four days later. Nick and the Metro police scramble for answers amidst rumors of political intrigue, while Fenton seeks to divert attention from himself and Angela crosses party lines to befriend Ellen. When Fenton, Angela, Ellen and Nick finally confront each other the case boils over in a surprising climax.
