A banker is assassinated in New York City. A geo-political crisis erupts half a world away. A man without a past arrives in the US, leaving a wake of destruction in his trail.

As banks fail, stocks crash, supermarket shelves go empty and the public begins to panic, Reilly dives headfirst into the chaos, confronting his own demons as he tries desperately to stop an all too imaginable Armageddon.
