Corporal Robert Perry, an Army reservist who fought in Iraq, was severely injured in an apparent error by Castleman Security, government contractors working in Iraq. The Army investigation clears Castleman of involvement, thus freeing them of any monetary obligation, and Perry lives too far from veteran's resources to allow him to receive government funded treatment that would allow him to work. He contacts Nathan Ford for help. What Nathan Ford and the rest of the Leverage team find is far more than a simple error.
