Simpson Bradley, an executive an audit firm is murdered one Wednesday in NYC. Cold blood style.
A week later, Keegan Burns, an out of work actor with a busted knee, is in a hospital, awaiting his discharge documents. He is reading about Bradley's murder in a newspaper. But that is not the only thing that ties him to it. Ruby, his nurse whom he has started to fancy, knows the killer.
Ruby's demeanour tells Keegan that something is amiss. On asking, she tells him about a friend named Asia (the killer's wife) being in trouble. Keegan is concerned about Ruby so he accompanies her when she meets Asia that evening.
As the events in the aftermath of the meeting transpire, Keegan Burns’ life is turned upside down as he becomes a key element to the Lotus Company- one of the largest crime syndicates in the world, with a plan which pushes the economy into jeopardy.
First, Asia is murdered. Then Duncan, her husband, who is languishing in a prison cell, is found with his throat slit on the same night. An unknown assailant nearly kills Ruby. Keegan is followed by unknown and dangerous people and his sister is kidnapped the following morning.
Why was Simpson Bradley murdered? What trouble was Asia in? Why has Keegan's sister been kidnapped? Will he able to save her? What has caused the sudden bloodbath?
With the help of a friend and rugged NYPD cop- Bruce, an attractive nurse- Ruby, a trusted Government source- Emma Hazelwood and his knee injury as compatriots, Keegan ventures to decrypt the fraudulent activities of the Lotus Company.
‘I am flying this,’ Keegan said.
Hazelwood looked at him, her eyebrows raised. ‘You cannot. Remember your knee is busted?’
‘The doctors said no cars, not no aircrafts.’
