Where ordinary people become heroes.
Who are you when someone steals your name?
Two men: a former tunnel rat in the Vietnam War and CIA assassin in Cambodia now in his 60s living a quiet life in Ypsilanti, Michigan; and a mysterious mastermind behind a number of major al Qaeda terror attacks since the 1990s. Two sons: a US assistant district attorney in Detroit; and a suspected terrorist awaiting trial for attempting to smuggle explosives across the Canadian border. One grandson: kidnapped and used as leverage.
Zane Keator’s identity is stolen by Zayn al-Qadir to gain entry into the US, and an FBI counterterrorist fly team raids Keator’s house in the middle of the night. Barely escaping, Keator realizes the team came in silent and hot, intending to kill, not capture, him. Fleeing the city in a “borrowed” car, he’s soon the subject of a massive manhunt.
And when his grandson is kidnapped, Keator suspects it has something to do with his own plight. Calling on his former CIA handler in Cambodia and a friend in the DA’s office where his son is preparing the case against suspected terrorist Ahmed Hassan, Keator figures out who’s behind his grandson’s kidnapping and why.
In a desperate race against time, Keator makes his way from Detroit to Washington, D.C., leaving a trail of murder and mayhem in his wake by all those who try to stand in his way. But Keator knows that only he can save his grandson, and he’s the only person who can stop Zayn al-Qadir from carrying out coordinated multi-city terror attacks and the most heinous terrorist act imaginable against the US.
As the FBI closes in and time runs out, Keator’s showdown with al-Qadir all comes down to two things: his fierce love for his autistic grandson, and an antique weapon he used against the Viet Cong in the Cù Chi tunnels outside Saigon.
