In this confrontation with corruption, Ann Higgins stumbles into the underworld life of a high-ranking South Dakota statesman, and she catapults her psychiatrist, Troy Stoker, MD, into the conflict.

Dr. Stoker enlists Errol Rivera, a fellow physician and military attaché, to help unravel the mystery and take on the challenges set before them. Together Stoker and Rivera use their brilliant intuition, psychiatric savvy, and military skills to pursue the veiled, corrupt politician and hunt down his criminal pack.
Still, Stoker is unaware that his Cuban-born, patriot friend, Rivera, is much more than a doctor with a hero's past. At his command Rivera unleashes an elite band of warriors who engage their training, guts, technology, and weaponry to confront the corruption.
