Washington, D.C.: Jason Brill, one of the youngest congressional chiefs of staff, prepares for the upcoming International Energy Summit. Working for influential senator John Quincy Allen, Jason is eager to prove himself. Despite his zeal and admiration for his boss, Jason begins to realize Senator Allen's support of EchoEnergy, as well as his personal friendship with the firm's CEO, may be more of a liability than an asset.
Sabrina and Jason have never met, but both are unwittingly drawn into a sinister plot that puts corporate greed and corruption above human life. As the energy summit draws near, Sabrina's determination to expose EchoEnergy's lethal secret has made her the target of silent, faceless enemies. And the net is tightening, held in the relentless grip of powerful shadow players whose identities reach Pennsylvania Avenue itself.
