From the executive producer of 24 , a debut thriller not to be missed! Gideon Davis has just one day to bring his rogue brother to justice—before a vast global conspiracy turns deadly.
Gideon Davis, whose behind-the-scenes negotiating skills have earned him the roll of Peacemaker in conflicts around the globe, knows more about hush-hush discussions in Capitol corridors than he does about hand-to-hand combat. But his more practical, tactical skills come into play when he’s called on by family friend and government bigwig Earl Parker to chaperone a rogue agent from the Southeast Asia to D.C. The agent, Tillman Davis has promised to turn himself in—but only to his brother Gideon.
When the plan for Tillman’s surrender goes awry, Gideon must evade hostile locals to make his way to The Obelisk—the multi-million-dollar, state-of-the-art oil rig that has been seized by terrorists. Both Tillman—who doesn’t seem to have surrender in mind—and Earl Parker are aboard the ill-fated rig; Tillman working undercover and Parker as a hostage. As tensions rise, Gideon launches an unlikely one-man rescue.
