Their superiors are cryptically vague with details, but are hellbent on the successful recovery of Shaw. The mission takes them through the dizzying war zone and the more they encounter, the more they wonder why they are searching for one man in these extreme circumstances. Why is this man so important to the deputy chief, and why now? They face rioting, looting, attacks and homicides while chasing down leads before Schmitty discovers that others, with high connections, are also after Shaw. When the team uncovers Shaw’s secret, it elevates the mission to a high-stakes race against time.
