Will kidnapping a sick woman alter the course of a nation?
At CIA headquarters, officers fear that terrorists commandeered the computer systems to launch an unauthorized mission.
Elsewhere, conspirators abduct several seemingly unrelated people to use as pawns in their treachery. Two disparate ambitions - Clint Masters becomes the reluctant link in the chain of danger.
Ever since Clint's wife dumped him, he bobs along the coast in a sailboat, avoiding technology - a counterintuitive effort for the burned-out founder of a high-tech company. After meeting a woman who doesn't treat him like a commodity, Beth unexpectedly disappears. But Clint's the only one who suspects foul play. In spite of the evidence, her family refuses to admit she's in danger. And without routine dialysis, Beth will die.
While a CIA officer tracks his quarry, he crosses paths with Clint, who must find Beth before her kidneys fail.
