Sinopsis: Who really knows a friend? The passions and secrets we hide from each other? The untimely demise of Hector Morreti unleashed a secret: that old revolutionaries never really die. Deep under cover, their cause is always sure and the fight continues. Jonah Chappel, a free-lance reporter, finds himself on life's downslide. Disappointed with his failed ambition to become a best selling novelist, he has become obsessed with pursuing stories of Chicago's corruption. Jonah navigates the seedy underground with no illusions about his role as a chronicler of deceit and despair. His only friend and haven of sorts, was Hector Morreti, the recently deceased and apparently reticent professor of languages, so it falls to Jonah to handle Hector's affairs. Hector's possessions reveal a political activism Jonah never suspected. Hector was not the tame academic everyone saw on the surface. He was involved with a new Global Anarchist Movement. The movement is a network of terrorists with many, like Hector, who have come out of retirement to advance the cause of anarchy in the world. Hector Morreti was their "banker." Suddenly Jonah finds himself a target of the FBI, and perhaps more terrifying, the band of fugitive terrorists interested in continuing Hector's work. Terrorists who are determined to eliminate Jonah before the US government can convince or coerce him to help bring the anarchists down. Jonah is desperate, but the key to surviving may lie in his own literary failure. His forgotten novel is a handbook for revolution. Manipulating the terrorists and the FBI in deadly balance, Jonah hatches a plot of his own. When his survival plan is complicated by his attraction to the lead FBI investigator, Special Agent Leslie Randolph, Jonah must decide if some secrets are worth the risk of sharing in order to find happiness.
