His turbulent past with the congressman and old college friend might complicate things a bit more.
Helped by an ambitious young writer and his determination, Cal is faced with stern opposition, and is now at the center of a swirling affair involving assassins, informants and big cover up. Very tough decision must be taken even if they conflict with his moral and ethical standings.
