One of the greatest relics in all of Islam-a treasure with the power to alter the course of history for Afghanistan and the world-is stolen from its guarded mosque in Kandahar. A week later, a CIA asset with knowledge of its whereabouts is murdered in a quiet Virginia suburb outside of D.C. Now it is up to Destin Saunders, a rogue agent suspended from active duty, to find Charles Phelan-a discharged U.S. Army shipping clerk from Boston and the only person who may hold the key to the relic's whereabouts. In order to succeed, Saunders is forced to rely on Phelan's sister Cianna-a disgraced former war hero and convicted murderer-to track her brother through the warrens of Boston's clannish underworld, and uncover an international conspiracy at the highest levels of the U.S. security community.
