Kathleen Jacobs, a renowned conflict journalist, returns home after a near-fatal incident cuts short her assignment in the Congo. Her mission, while incomplete, is still a success; she uncovers what could lead to an incredible scoop.

When Kat pitches the story to her editor, he turns her down – a rather strange decision for a man always on a quest for the next big headline. Kathleen, however, is determined to break the story, a decision that pitches her squarely against major political forces. When she refuses to back off despite numerous “incidents”, Kat suddenly finds herself on the run, aided only by her ex-husband and an ex-military consultant.

What ensues is a cat-and-mouse chase that forces her to risk everything. Not only are Kat’s career and reputation on the line, but also her life, as well as that of her family.
