When a group of boys playing baseball make a gruesome discovery, FBI Special Agent Red Akers's world is drastically altered. The change begins when the President, an old acquaintance of Red's, wants his help in solving the mysterious death of an influential Senator.
The agent is required to drop the unfinished case he was working and leave the familiar surroundings of the open west to tackle the intrigue, murder, and political power of the nation's capital. Here his hard-hitting, call-it-as-he-sees-it, cowboy style of investigation runs head-on into the hostility of a very ambitious yet much more refined Agent Andrews, his new female partner.
The two agents discover the deadly trail has more twists and turns than a desert rattler. They also find that if you chase danger long enough, it finally has a way of catching up with you -- and what was just another case suddenly becomes personal.
