An action-packed thriller about two men living very different lives: one, a successful corporate consultant; the other, a former CIA agent known only as "Pilgrim," whose current assignment for a fringe espionage agency is so treacherous he doesn't trust even his own boss. Ben Forsberg is a successful corporate consultant who is mourning the murder of his new bride. "Pilgrim" is a former CIA agent who is weary from the long years of living in the shadows. When Ben's business card turns up in the pocket of a dead hit man, Ben and Pilgrim, two complete strangers, realize that they've been framed in an elaborate setup. Unsure who to trust-and pursued by a brutal and vengeful killer-the unlikely partners have no choice but to work together to discover who's targeted them for elimination-and why. But with everything at stake, Ben has no idea that Pilgrim is harboring some shocking secrets of his own-secrets that will soon force Ben to confront the blurred line between best friends and bitter enemies.
