A bomb goes off on a crowded Chicago Street. A cab driver dies, and so does Jack Beckett’s friend. Someone is going to pay. Six blocks away the bomber slips into the night not knowing what happened. The bomb was intended for City Hall but was left in a backpack under the seat of a cab. Unintended consequences. Entirely bad luck for Beckett’s childhood friend.
The bomber belongs to a group of anarchists. Young idealists with twisted ideas living on a farm south of Chicago. They have plans. So does Beckett who is closing in by the hour. Beckett will make them pay. All he needs is a little more time. Will he find them before they take dozens more innocent lives?
