Carter Ransom faces his greatest nightmare. His precious wife, Molly, has gone missing. The police write it off as abandonment, but Carter knows better. Following a strange call from Molly, Carter's chase begins.
Seemingly at the wrong place at the wrong time, his wife is entangled in a terrorist plot-abducted and tormented, unless Carter can save her. But the Ransom family is not alone in their troubles. America, too, is under attack. A well-hidden mole in Washington is waiting to bring America to her knees, and not even the president can stop him.
Soon, Carter finds Molly, but now they are both captives, held by Nick Brodie, a ruthless killer who gorges himself on the fears of others. Worlds collide as everything converges on Krimmler Falls, Austria. American Special Forces want answers; Carter and Molly just want to escape. Through a mysterious encounter, Carter has already learned that truly loving Molly compels him to pursue her at all times. But soon he finds out that it also means giving himself, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.
