Rogue operative Sophia is in the wrong place at the right time.
A terrorist attack vaporizes a large chunk of the Upper West Side, almost killing Sophia. Narrowly avoiding the explosion, she gives chase to an operative running from the blast zone.
Amid the chaos, Sophia recovers a rare meteorite from the operative and is quickly ensnared in a hunt between clashing factions of a labyrinthine covert government known as the Fifth Column.
With New York City sealed off and the hurricane rapidly approaching, Sophia has nowhere to run and everything to lose.
