Gibson finds himself on a mission orchestrated by Beth Ann's kidnapper, who insists Gibson publicly confess to his crimes at a ceremony with the President and First Lady. Meanwhile, Ian receives a cryptic message that sends him and Amber on a dangerous mission. Elsewhere, Finley and Dunn attempt to stop a threat and stumble upon a shocking revelation.
It's field trip day for the students of Ballard High School, a place that educates the children of Washington, D.C'.s elite, top-of-their-industry CEOs, international diplomats, political power players and even the president's son. But when their bus is ambushed on a secluded rural road, the teenagers and their chaperones are taken, igniting a national crisis.
Now with some of the country's most powerful parents at the mercy of one vengeful mastermind, the question arises: How far would you go and what would you become to ensure your child's safe return? With so many parents and dignitaries put into play with nowhere to turn and no one to trust, this unthinkable scenario grows from the select families at risk to an entire nation at stake.
