Damon Pierce's life is crumbling. The talented California attorney's wife is divorcing him and his work often seems soulless. So when he receives a frantic email from Marissa Brand Okari, a woman he loved years ago, he decides to risk everything and respond to her plea for help.
Marissa's husband, Bobby Okari, is the charismatic leader of a freedom movement in Luandia, West Africa, a nation that's being torn apart by the world's craving for its vast oil supply. When Bobby stages a protest against a giant American oil company with close ties to Luandia's brutal government, all hell breaks loose. Everyone in Bobby's home village is massacred and Bobby is thrown in jail. Pierce agrees to defend Bobby, but the lethal politics of Luandia could cost him his own life.
