"Hour after hour. Death after death. A young mother of two walks into a bustling Cincinatti mall, douses herself with gasoline and lights a match. She's the first to burn. She won't be the last. America locks down beneath an endless human firestorm. Only Christopher Wren can root out the sickness, with the help of brilliant CIA agent Sally Rogers, but the clock is ticking, and Wren's tyrannical father is about to ascend to the greatest stage on Earth, alongside a new President of the United States. And on that day, there will be no shelter from the storm."
