No one is more surprised than FBI Agent Peter Sutherland when he’s tapped to work in the White House Situation Room. When Peter was a boy, his father, was suspected of selling secrets to the Russians-a catastrophic breach that cost him his career, his reputation, and eventually his life. Peter knows intimately how one broken rule can have devastating consequences, and he has always done everything strictly by the book. Nowhere is he more vigilant than in this room, the sanctum of America's secrets. His job is monitoring an emergency line for a call that has not-and might never-come. Until tonight. At 1:05 a.m. the phone rings. A terrified young woman tells Peter that two people have just been murdered and that the killer might still be in the house with her. One of the victims gave her this phone number with urgent instructions: "Tell them OSPREY was right. It’s happening. . ." The call thrusts Peter into the heart of a conspiracy years in the making, involving a Russian mole at the highest levels of the government. Anyone could be corrupted. Anyone could be corrupted. To save the nation, Peter must take the rules into his own hands, question everything, and trust no one.
