Run back in your mind to 1991.  There you’ll find the privileged San Francisco Balor family.

Yet all is not as it should be.

Harry Balor has implicit trust in his college friend and business partner, Demetri Kitos Nevi, for taking ARAWN’s aeroponic growing business to huge profits and for providing great world benefit.  Without explanation, however, son Joe Balor is taken off his critical engineering project.   Joe’s girlfriend is abruptly sent out of town, making Joe spiral down.  Joe’s defiant sister, Holle, returns from out West with a darkly mysterious fiance, causing her mother, Sofia, to make the best of an out of control situation.

Demetri and Harry engage their bankers in Japan for leveraging their own money in a money laundering scheme.   Charities are exploited.  Worse, a murderous mercenary propels the scheme further, turning many of the most beautiful places on earth – Canada, Yellowstone, Bolivia, Palau, Seattle, and Iceland – into the deadliest.

Undue influence from personal relationships, natural phenomena, and political intrigue cannot slow the inevitable.  Even the FBI, just a step behind, will not bring justice.
