    CIA's Max Wayne (formerly of SEAL Team Six) and his brother Tom (a former Army Ranger) are bound by blood to execute the highest threat missions that the United States denies. When their father (a Force Recon Marine vet), also working for the Agency, is captured by the Chinese, Max and Tom must find him before he is executed. In their search, the brothers discover a stolen biological weapon and a rogue Chinese special operator leading a clandestine strike against America.
