Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are working a case involving a missing mother.

The two cases intertwine in surprising ways as they come face-to-face with a man with ties to dangerous arms dealers who leave behind a savagely murdered boy and enough explosives to blow up the whole neighborhood, with them in it.
