Some families shouldn't stick together. When unlimited wealth and power are incorporated into the mix too, no boundaries are safe.

Dan Calder's thrown in at the deep end to help Police unravel the evidence of a terrorist bombing plot at Auckland International Airport, but the one thing he needs most of all is the one thing he doesn't have .... time.

When Calder challenge the authorities view, he's summarily dumped from the investigation. Aggrieved and hell bent on solving the outrageously audacious crime, he takes off to St Louis in search of a missing sister and preventing the family reunion to end all reunions.
