Behind the well-known U.S. security organizationsa€” the FBI and CIA among thema€”lies a heavily guarded, anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance and to a highly specialized brand of citizen protection. Shock waves of alarm ripple through the clandestine agency when Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned, ruthless a€œliftera€ hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary.

As the team digs deeper, each of the Kesslers comes under close scrutiny, and in captivity their family bonds are stretched to the breaking pointa€”as the lifter draws near, Corte must ultimately choose between protecting his charges and exposing them to a killer in the name of long-awaited revenge.Freddy, you and Garcia stay in the house and cover the side yard, the one with the trees, and the back.
