THERE WAS ONE PRISONER MISSING. ONLY ONE. BUT HE WAS AN IMPORTANT ONE. Government investigator John Puller will stop at nothing to expose the truth. Although some cases land too close to home. His brother, Robert, convicted of treason and an expert in nuclear weaponry and cyber-security, has escaped from the US army's most secure prison. Now he's on the run, and Puller is ordered to bring him in to face justice.
Facing a terrible dilemma, Puller must decide which comes first: loyalty to his country, or to his brother. Blood is thicker than water, but national security is on the line.
As the case progresses, troubling details soon emerge about Robert's conviction . . . and someone out there doesn't want the truth to ever come to light. As the nationwide manhunt grows more intense, Puller's masterful skills as an investigator may not be enough to save his brother. Or himself.
