Retired NYC detective Jack Kane returns and joins forces, once again, with Pennsylvania state police detective Tom Caputo to stop a terrorist cell from exploding a suitcase nuclear bomb in the center of downtown Pittsburgh. If they are not stopped, the president of the United States and the Israeli prime minister, who are in town to speak at a meeting of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, will die. Not only is the duo pitted against a sophisticated and deeply embedded terrorist cell, but Kane also finds that he is up against an old nemesis who is known only as the Ghost. He had his first falling out with this hired assassin while on the force in the mid nineties. The two return for an explosive confrontation.
