Brilliant scientist and government operative Dr. Reagan "Ray" Brady should be dead. Instead, Ray has the perfect life, working for an ultra-secret division of DHS, watching for invasion by extraterrestrials and time travelers. This team includes his wife, Samantha Brady. The team's "mascot" is their one-year-old daughter, Abigail. When a mysterious man shows up, leaving several dead, Ray's team confronts him in NYC, where the man leaps from the roof of a ten-story building - and vanishes in mid-air. Seconds later, Samantha sees video of the same man touring the Y-12 Plant in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. A genetic scientist disappears from his locked office. Gold and other items, including fissile material from Oak Ridge, are vanishing around the world. Who is this man? What does he intend to do with all of the stolen wealth and dangerous material he has amassed? And can Ray and his team stop him?
