In an attempt to seek cancer treatment for his mother, Saudi Prince Omar bin Talal visits Houston, Texas. A threat on his life puts all agencies on high alert. FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson is assigned the lead protective detail as a result of their long-standing friendship. After the assassination attempt, however, the CIA brings in one of their lead operatives, Monica Alden.
Kord and Monica have to put their interagency competition to rest when they learn the prince has some other plans for his visit. He hopes to promote stronger ties with the U.S. and promote economic growth and westernization in his own country. These plans could stir up conflict from groups within the U.S. and with enemies to Saudi Arabia.
To top it off, the attempted assassin has yet to be caught, and is always one step ahead. Their best guess is that this unknown perpetrator is someone close to the prince, or someone who is in on the investigation. Who would be willing to commit high treason? Can Kord and Monica stop them in time?
