Jim Factor is a successful arms dealer living in Southern California with clients and customers in Europe and the Middle East. Contacted by a recent associate, he is told he has been mistakenly marked for death by a Bulgarian arms dealer and manufacturer whom they had both been working with on a multi-million-dollar arms deal.
To protect his wife, Factor becomes untraceable and escapes to San Francisco to start a new life until he can acquire fake passports and lose his life as he knows it.
Unbeknownst to Factor, his wife has hired a private detective and the Russian mafia is going to let the PI lead them directly to him. An easy kill, or so they thought.
A man hunt of unequalled proportions turns into a world-wide quest for freedom and redemption.
