Naive has never been a word to describe Peter Farrell. As the second son of a St. Louis Irish beat cop, Peter knew better than most that things may not always be what they seem. However, nothing prepared the young attorney for the stack of files that his client hands him. The files contain evidence of a multi-national corporation's manipulation of the American political system through campaign contributions, bribes and blackmail. Behind the corruption lies the poster boy for corporate America and the religious right, billionaire Elias St. Armand. The hunt for Peter and St. Armand's files intensifies when Farrell is branded a serial killer for the murders of several attorneys. His face is plastered on every television and personal computer with up-to-the minute breaking news and live updates during the nationwide manhunt for the "Shakespeare Killer." Farrell escapes from St. Louis to San Francisco, where he finds Sara Ahrens, his former girlfriend and one true love. More importantly, she is the only one he can trust now. Over the course of three harrowing days, Peter and Sara discover they are unwilling pawns in St. Armand's plan to thrust the U.S. into a war with Syria that will set the Muslim world ablaze. A plan that requires another terrorist attack on New York City where thousands will die unless the plot behind the Cross of St. Maro is revealed in time.
