After going rogue and laying low on a farm in the Midwest, Hadrian Black, an ex black-ops soldier turned covert government agent resurfaces and seeks revenge against the company that made him what he is. With the aid of an old friend, and the schemes and resources of a new one, Hadrian faces off against the deadly agents of the multifaceted corporation with a global reach known as Redrum Industries, which is also out to destroy him.
When a nuclear explosion in Turkey kills members of a Kill Factor PMC unit, signs point to Redrum Industries. Doc dispatches Trajan and Magenta to Prague on a covert mission that involves a brilliant theoretical physicist the Redrum elites have been courting. In Beijing, Auggie starts the ball rolling on the final leg of his nefarious market strategies in an attempt to cripple Redrum corporately.
Doc and Augustus set up shop in Beijing and hatch new plans to strike at the heart of Redrum Industries. Meanwhile, Hadrian heads to Geneva in the hopes that answers to underlying questions will be found there, as well as a secret Redrum spy farm, but as usual, trouble follows. And Magenta is dispatched to Monaco on a short mission prior to waking a sleeper agent that will prove valuable to the new Kill Factor organization.
