Jake Harrigan is a lethal government assassin based in Washington where his wife, who he adores, works for a large defense contractor, totally unaware of what Jake does for the government. While Jake is on a dangerous mission to terminate the patriarch of a large family oil company in Dubai, who refuses to work on illegal arms deals with rogue government agents, Jake´s bosses, his wife overhears those same agents and her boss discussing their treacherous plans, after which she and her friend are terminated, just to keep them quiet. Jake is angry and devastated and with help from Sarah, a friendly federal agent, he goes in search of the people responsible, determined to kill them, not realizing that the vengeance-seeking Arab sons and lethal bodyguards of the man he terminated in Dubai, have been sent to kill him by his treacherous agency colleagues. 1.
