Senate investigator Jackson Guild uncovers a terrorist plot to set off a nuclear weapon in the beating heart of Washington.

But there's a twist.

If Guild exposes the conspirators, he sets off a nuclear blow-by-blow. That plunges Guild into a lose-lose situation, and he’s got to walk the razor’s edge between the Truth and its Consequences.

It may be that our hero is the real enemy.
