An adaptation of a Robert Ludlum thriller novel, Paul Janson, an ex-Navy SEAL and former member of the covert government agency Consular Operations.

Years later, Janson is a corporate secutiry consultant who takes a job rescuing an important man, but when the job goes awry, Janson is targeted for a "beyond salvage" termination order. He has no choice but to follow the clues that lead him to a massive scandal.
