A vengeful madman escaped from federal prison. A suspected terrorist group that robs L.A. banks with flamethrowers. In a race against time, a legendary FBI agent is forced to rob three banks in three hours or never see his daughter again.
Special Agent Loomis Coogan of the FBI Bank Robbery Squad has spent his career capturing violent criminals, men like his father–bank robbers. It ended his marriage and damaged his health. Now, the “One Nation” bank robberies present a dangerous group feared to have links to domestic terrorism. One Nation robs Los Angeles’ banks with modified military flamethrowers and then vanishes like ghosts.
Coogan’s daughter, Kim, arrives for the summer, but Simeon Deeds, the most dangerous of all Coogan’s arrests from an era when L.A. was the bank robbery capital of the world, escapes federal prison. The heir of a billionaire banking tycoon, Deeds hates the American capitalist system and declared war by burglarizing banks and planting explosives in the vaults. He was sentenced to life–courtesy of Coogan.
Deeds kidnaps Kim, holding her in a water-controlled submersion chamber that increases its depth with every ticking second. Coogan is given an ultimatum: rob three specific banks within three hours or never see his daughter again.
If Coogan can survive Deeds, he will be rocked by a revelation concerning “One Nation” that will shake the FBI to its foundation.
