Journalist Weldon Drake is drawn into the biggest and bloodiest story of his career when Astrid Nelson, a beautiful and brilliant computer scientist, is nearly murdered inside his African-American Baptist church.
In his quest for the truth, Drake faces off against a renowned and ruthless MIT professor, an international band of hackers plotting the biggest financial heist in history, and a brutal team of enforcers.
But Drake also discovers the most unexpected conspiracy of all — a secret society of powerful black men, hidden in the heart of the church, who have quietly tampered with history for nearly 150 years.
