President Patricia Grant has been impeached. Her trial in the Senate and the fate of her presidency lie just around the corner. That leads James J. McGill to suggest publicly that he might break the noses of any number of Washington pols. White House Chief of Staff Galia Mindel tells McGill he's not being helpful. She sends him to work a case in Los Angeles. A friend of Galia's has just had her frozen embryos stolen. McGill knows he'll need a fed to run interference for him with the LAPD. He teams up with BIA Co-director John Tall Wolf. Even out in La-La Land, though, McGill can't escape Washington politics. The primary suspect in the theft has close connections to House leadership, the very people who initiated the impeachment charge. Even worse, McGill learns of a threat against his life. Somebody doesn't like him snooping around in SoCal. That guy wants to do more than bust McGill's beak, he wants to punch his ticket.

One Saturday morning, a new client comes to Jim McGill with a desperate plea. Zara Gilford says someone is planning to kill her husband. Jordan Gilford is famous as a whistle-blower who exposed corruption at two major defense contractors. Now, he works for the Inspector General's office at the Pentagon. Zara tells McGill someone wants to make sure Jordan doesn't find any thievery inside the Department of Defense. That same morning, Abel Mays, a despondent public high school football coach who has lost two star players from his team to the recruiting efforts of the coach at the exclusive Winstead School in Georgetown, uses an assault weapon to gun down the players who deserted him, their new coaches and the teammates who try to intervene. Then Mays is found shot dead in his SUV - after his weapon is used to kill one last victim: Jordan Gilford. For FirePower America lobbyist Auric Ludwig this is a dream come true.
