Overview

When Scott Carter, a savvy civil and structural engineer, finds himself in an elevator at the top of one of his own high-rise building designs, a powerful blast in the basement rocks Carter from his everyday life into a media limelight--and ultimately into the crosshairs of a technically cunning terrorist, alias Jackhammer. Carter becomes a consultant to the FBI as it investigates the engineering angles to the case, teaming up with Special Agent Michelle Taylor, whose striking presence pulls Carter into the complications of a growing love and doubts about his future. The partners soon find themselves matching wits with an elusive mastermind hell-bent on bringing down the lifelines of a city's public works.
