In this novel, Alexander J. Burns, a brain-injured, counterterrorist specialist, recovers his memory and that puts him and his friends in danger from his former clandestine agency.
A counterterrorist specialist injured en-route to a classified mission is sent home to recover. As a result of his injuries, his memories are sealed up and he finds himself wanting to know who he was. While in recovery, the agency he works for is closely watching him: they want to know what he knows before they kill him. A nurse, with her own secrets and demons, finds a way to get him treatment to help recovery his memories. She enlists a former supervisor and colleague to provide treatment. The treatment, while unorthodox, starts to work and things start to go bad for everyone trying to help.
The counter-terrorist has not only remembered his past but he is repulsed by it. He has changed. He is not the same man. No longer interested in learning what he knows, the agency wants to tie up lose ends and kill him and everyone connected with his case.
With this new found sense of morality and trying to do the right thing, he makes the decision to assist the people who are now hunted because of him. They need to come together and form a team if they want to survive. That will mean changing themselves, learning new things that they never would have considered possible, and then to commit acts against the United States that would be considered domestic terrorism.
