Seven years ago, U.S. Marine Gerrit O’Rourke returned from Iraq after learning of a family tragedy. When a manhunt turns up empty, Gerrit joins that city’s police department to find those responsible and bring them to justice.

Gerrit travels undercover to a European city on what he believes to be a matter of national security.  Contacted by a mysterious woman, Alena Shapiro, Gerrit discovers his life is in danger. Gerrit returns home only to find people close to him wind up dead.

Gerrit and Alena combine forces with others to live Off The Grid while uncovering a conspiracy that reaches to the highest level of government. Against overwhelming odds, they seek to expose a breach in national security. Time is running out—for Gerrit, for Alena…for the nation.
