Always the odd man out, Christian Michaels longs for the day to get a case he can really sink his teeth into. A burglary at John Hopkins Hospital is just the beginning to a mystery he never saw coming.
SYNOPSIS:Christian Michaels is a talented yet jaded Baltimore city detective. His indifference towards his job, disdain for his colleagues, and general unreliability over the prior year have both alienated him from fellow officers at the precinct and garnered the wrath of his abrasive and hard-headed captain. Unaware of the circumstances surrounding Christian's odd behavior, the captain has generally dismissed Christian as a liability, assigning him to low-level cases and preventing the detective from contributing to meaningful investigations.
One morning, Sergeant James Davis, Christian’s last remaining ally, is ordered to escort Christian to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where the two officers are assigned to investigate what their captain believes to be an otherwise benign and dead-end burglary on a research laboratory floor. Christian discovers quickly that the break-in is anything but a minor routine annoyance, and he finds himself involved in a murder, kidnapping, and potential global conspiracy of the highest order - one that threatens the lives of everyone around him.
Going against his captain’s orders to drop the case, and with only James and a Johns Hopkins research scientist as his support, Christian sets out to discover the truth, requiring him to put aside his apathetic nature and cold personality, and to revisit a previously unsolved case from a year earlier.
