When a U.S. airdrop of billions of dollars disappears in Syria, only a small group of military operatives knows its ultimate destination or why it has been stolen. Their goal is the restoration of America's geopolitical dominance. Essential to this scheme are Greta Webb, a CIA operative who is an expert on dark money, and Elias Vicker, who runs the world's largest hedge fund. To achieve its goals, the group must form dangerous alliances. One is with the family that manages the largest private pool of capital that's ever existed. Another is with Fyodor Volk, a mercenary with ties to Vladimir Putin. Volk has his eye on Greta. She would be wise to avoid him but cannot.
