Kansas City banker Mark Griffin has a big new promotion along with a fat paycheck. His life is rapidly shifting into the fast lane where all that he ever desired is quickly falling within his grasp. Suddenly out of his blind spot a deadly threat arises from a most unlikely source. Soon Griffin finds himself the victim of blackmail and if he does not agree to use customer deposits to finance illegal investment activities on Wall Street, then he and his family face certain danger. At first the transactions are small and are unlikely to be detected. Soon however, the greedy blackmailer moves to increase the size of the transactions risking certain discovery. When Griffin moves to tell his superiors at the Bank, he learns to his dismay that they are hiding their own involvement in criminal activities. With his options narrowing and time quickly running out, he must secretly travel to New York City and draw on every ounce of cunning and determination to deal with his nemesis and permanently end the threat to his family.
