When Peter and Vincent arrive in the Congo, they learn that Grace has fallen into the hands of a military faction. While Vincent immediately goes to look for Grace, Peter tries to secure her return transport. But the splinter group is not their only problem: Luther Bruhn has followed them and wants to use the chaotic situation for his own purposes.
Set against a backdrop of international espionage and corporate sabotage in the 21st century's privately-funded space race, follow hardened former counter-intelligence officer Captain Vincent Corbo. After their advanced medical satellite explodes on deployment, billionaire futurist Peter Swann and his fiancée, medical visionary Dr. Graciela "Grace" Davila, turn to Corbo. Corbo assembles a team of experienced professionals to investigate the incident. They learn that any combination of Swann's business rivals, corrupt governments officials, and a shadowy crime syndicate could be behind the attack and represent a continued threat.
