Ira McAlister was old school, he worked as a CIA field agent back in the days when hunting down leads, bribing and blackmailing a clearly defined enemy and killing the enemy were part of the covert operation’s duty. Gathering intelligence and working angles, infiltrating organizations and enemy camps and seeing real time results. That was what Ira missed. It seemed meaningful and important to our national security. Now, with the Cold War over, Ira spent his days sifting through data on a computer, analyzing potential threats, correlating chat rooms and blogs and creating reports and potential scenarios, usually handing them off to those who probably didn’t pay much attention to the details that Ira pulled together.
That was until Senator Marshall, his wife and daughter were assassinated by a professional hit squad. The brutal murders had international ties. The FBI and the CIA formed a joint task force to hunt down the killers and bring them to justice. Ira found himself working with a very savvy, smart and strong FBI agent, Valerie Delgado. Together they would learn to love as well as hate each other, to respect and trust with an eye of suspicion on each other’s plans and motives.
An International Arms Dealer called “The Voice” would create terrible consequences for the FBI, CIA and our government, as they tried to find the killers and the reason for their murders. The conspiracy ran from the highest offices of government to the lowest terrorist haunting our way of life. The profit for this type of business outweighed the oath of office most of these folks had taken. Their greed and need for power overruled their patriotism. With enemies from without and from within their own team as well as those in government and political office, Ira and Delgado had to work in the shadows and plan for the justice deserved through back channels and questionable methods.
