But one day this perfect life is shattered when her husband Tom Chapman is suddenly arrested by a team of government agents and accused of a brutal crime he insists he didnt commit.

Now Claire must put her reputation on the line to defend Tom in a top-secret court-martial. As she searches for the truth, she begins to unravel an insidious, high-level government conspiracy that threatens not only her career but also her life, and the lives of her loved ones.
All the while, she struggles to maintain her belief in her husbands innocence - even when all the evidence seems to indicate that he is a cold-blooded murderer.
