A mere proposal to legalize certain drugs results in dire consequences for all involved. US Senator Tom Graves's proposal to legalize drugs creates a backlash from the religious right, whose opposition is unwittingly organized and funded by Carlos Renner, one of Washington's many power brokers, not knowing that Renner is a drug lord. The opposition takes a deadly turn when a zealot detonates an explosive during the first hearing on the proposal, and Graves is hospitalized.
During his recovery, he meets Dr. Victoria Bennett, a woman with a complicated past. Unaware of her background, they become involved. When tragedy later strikes, Graves resorts to his combat experience in Iraq to track down her murderer, who has fled to Rio. Captured by Renner, Graves is helped to escape by his daughter, Angelica, only to be tracked down and surrounded in an abandoned DEA safe house by Renner's trained assassins. Escape seems impossible.
This book is an international thriller that shows there can be No Escape.
