When a former Army veteran suddenly murders a colonel in New York, he claims that he had to do it because he was being used in mind control experiments. Is it a case of post-traumatic stress from his tours in Afghanistan-- or something more? New York District Attorney Roger "Butch" Karp prepares a murder case against the veteran, and meets with investigative reporter Ariadne Stupenagel, who suspects that one of her sources for a story on high-level government corruption was a victim in the shooting. They discover a monumental betrayal of our nation's security and integrity. New York District Attorney Butch Karp and his crime-fighting wife, Marlene, place their lives in danger to seek justice for a murdered FBI associate while exposing security-compromising corruption at the highest levels of government.
