Innocent bystanders are being targeted by a highly trained assassin on the rainy streets of Seattle near Fort Lewis. Denny Burg and Jim Clark have just started their ranger, anti-terrorist training. They met only weeks before in Airborne School. Jim secretly learns from an FBI Special Agent that Denny’s father had been in Special Operations. Everyone thought he was dead—except Denny. In his attempt to find him, Denny came into contact with a terrorist group overseas and killed a man. While at Fort Lewis, Denny and Jim become close friends. At the same time, there’s a string of cold-blooded, daytime killings in the Emerald City. The murderer “looks into the eyes” of the victims before striking, and “manipulates the situation in order to rearrange the outcome—death.” Through a series of chance encounters in Chinatown and two brutal deaths in the muddy swamps of Florida during Ranger School, Denny and Jim finally piece together who the real enemy is.
