When a career federal bureaucrat is contacted by an old college friend – a Baltimore cop – he steps into more than he expected, including vigilante heroics by 16-year-old basketball players whose fearless involvement to stop a known street criminal sets off a series of bizarre connections to an international drug cartel. Operated by a powerful Korean billionaire with sights set on world domination, the drug business is secondary to his real intentions, something the bureaucrat and cop hope to discover while also searching for an assassin beaded on the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. But why? That’s the puzzling question for which the bureaucrat wants answers. And the answers appear when the billionaire’s Global Anchor drops on an unsuspecting part of the nation’s economy.
