After the tragic loss of his beloved wife and unborn son, Nolan Kilkenny arrives at the Vatican and is called to the side of the dying pope Leo XIV. The pope discloses that more than twenty years earlier he made Yin Daoming-an imprisoned Bishop of Shanghai who has served thirty years of a life sentence for refusing to renounce his Catholic Faith-a secret cardinal. The pope asks Kilkenny to form a team to go to China, free Yin and bring him back to the Vatican. Standing in Kilkenny's way is intelligence agent Liu Shing-Li of the Chinese Ministry of State Security. With help from the U.S. Special Forces and the C.I.A., Kilkenny assembles a team that will use some of the most advanced weapons, aircraft, and computer technology to execute this extraordinary mission.
