A fortressed bank in Los Angeles is raided and the authorities are left to work out how.
On the other side of the country, a woman is kidnapped but her husband does not alert authorities for three days. Why?
Two warring countries settle their dispute with a mysterious gem offered as a truce that is then lost.
US military secrets are taken and the government wants them back at all costs. The Directive: retrieve or destroy.
Neither the FBI or any other law enforcement agency has the answer so outsider Kip Keplar is brought in to offer up ideas. Any ideas.
First things first. Work out how these guys robbed the bank. It may shed some light on the mystery.
Then, find these guys, wherever they are.
Remember the objective, retrieve the military secrets or destroy them. All collateral damage is the price worth paying.
It's a breathtaking hunt to the finish and ultimately, there is no time to lose to achieve the end game.
Where do you start?
So now it becomes a race against time, to not only find out how they did it, but where they went and how do you recover the goods. The orders from the top of the US government are crystal clear; recover the military documents or destroy them. Whatever it takes.
It's a guessing game as to where the crooks are and who will end up with the goods, revealed only in the gripping finale.
Kip Keplar is intrigued by the perfect crime. He is drawn into the FBI's case of tracking down those who stole a mysterious ancient gem, property that belongs to modern-day titans and classified military secrets.
Retrieving this bountiful treasure trove at all costs is an understatement. Wits are matched and tested, and lives are on the line as both the hunters and the hunted, race against the clock to secure the pent-ultimate prize.
There is no time to lose - guaranteed.
