President Richard Monroe - populist, controversial, and divisive - is at the center of an increasingly polarized Washington, DC. Never has the paranoia been so rampant. In the midst of political turf wars, the White House chief of staff is found dead in his house. A tenacious intern discovers a single, ominous clue that suggests he died from something other than natural causes, and that a wide-ranging conspiracy is running beneath the surface of everyday events. Allies are exposed as enemies, once-dependable authorities fall under suspicion, and no one seems to be who they say they are. Who will die to keep its secrets and who will kill to uncover the truth?
