A terrorist bomb destroys a corporate jet, and a reluctant Conor Gifford, the Chief of the Office of Special Investigations, is thrust into an investigation that takes him to picturesque but bloody Kashmir where he is greeted with disdain and encouraged to withdraw. With a solitary Indian Special Branch shadow as his only companion, Gif stubbornly ignores the advice and warnings of competing Indian and American investigators and eventually follows a trail that takes him to Karachi, Islamabad and Reston, Virginia. Gif uncovers two vital clues which he turns over to the FBI investigative team. A distracted Gifford eagerly withdraws from the hunt for the bomber and hurries back to Richmond only to have the governor dispatch him to Virginia Beach to join a hunt for a serial killer. Gif, delighted to be returning to turf that he knows, hurries south. Before Gif is able to fully engage with the search for the serial killer, an eccentric billionaire contrives Gif's return to the quest for the bomber. Forced to balance the pressures of two distracting investigations, Gif commutes between Washington, D.C., Richmond, and Virginia Beach until assistance from two unlikely sources lead him two very dissimilar antagonists. Both investigations culminate in one violent weekend.
Conor Gifford, Chief of the Office of Special Investigations, a unit with a dark and dubious bureaucratic history, currently under the loose command of Colonel Harris Townsend, the Superintendent of the Virginia State Police, paused in front of the desk that controlled access to the governor's private office and forced himself to smile. Grace Hanson, Governor Harrison Tate's private secretary, chuckled, letting her visitor know that his attempt to conceal his irritation with the governor's command summons had failed.
