Plot Summary

  • A convert to Islam sends the U.S. government a tape showing him in three nondescript storage rooms, each of which may contain a nuclear bomb set to detonate in less than a week. Helen Brody, an FBI agent in L.A., is tasked with finding the bombs while a CIA "consultant," known as H, interrogates the suspect who has allowed himself to be caught. The suspect, whose wife and children have left him and disappeared, seems to know exactly what the interrogation will entail. Even as H ratchets up the pressure, using torture over Brody's objection, the suspect doesn't crack. Should H do the unthinkable, and will Brody acquiesce? Is any Constitutional principle worth possible loss of life?

  • After suspecting Henry Humphries of being a terrorist, FBI Agent Helen Brody and others from the Counter-Terrorism Unit find out that he is connected with CIA, and they must work together with him to interrogate a suspect, Steven Arthur Younger, who has allegedly placed three nuclear bombs in three U.S. cities that will explode on Friday October 21st. After conventional questioning and torture fail, Henry resorts to unconventional means, much to Helen's chagrin. A battered and bloodied Steven states that he will only reveal the locations of these bombs after the President makes a public announcement that there will be no further financial and military support of puppet regimes and dictators in any Islamic nation; and all U.S. forces must withdraw from all Islamic nations. Will the U.S. be willing to change it's centuries-old 'Foreign Policy' in order to save the lives of millions of its' citizens or will Henry have to do the unthinkable in order to get this suspect to reveal the exact location of these bombs?
