The murder of a young prostitute followed by a police shootout on a cold, deserted beach on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario draws FBI Special Agent Ted Lansing into the most lethal case of his career.
Agent Lansing and his beautiful partner, Jennifer Fallana, have three months to lay bare the Subterfuge Conspiracy, recover a shipment of stolen radioactive cesium pellets smuggled into the country across Lake Ontario and thwart the detonation of a dirty bomb planned for New Year’s Eve on the crowded National Mall in Washington D.C.
From upstate New York to Paris, to Yemen, and back to Washington D.C., Fargo Blake, ex military, cold and deadly, has been tasked by the true conspirators to eliminate their Arab co conspirators and lay blame for the attack squarely shoulders of the Arabs —The perfect terrorist plot.
Backed by a cabal of politically powerful men tied to the highest echelons of the United States government and a rogue CIA agent, Colin Mills, the conspiracy reaches all the way into the halls of the U.S. Senate. The conspiracy’s endgame: discredit the first elected Hispanic president’s credibility on global terrorism, bring down his administration, deny him a second term and elect their hand picked successor.
