After five years on the run Court Gentry is back on the inside at the CIA. But when his first mission includes a pair of Chinese agents trying to take him down in Hong Kong, Court wants to know why. His search leads him to his old friend, Donald Fitzroy, who is being held hostage by the Chinese. Fitzroy was contracted to find Fan Jiang, a former member of an ultra-secret computer warfare unit. The first two kill teams Fitzroy sent to find Fan have disappeared and the Chinese have decided to "supervise"the next operation.
