Kit Andrews, owner of Rocky Mountain Searchers, receives a request from a woman in Santa Fe, New Mexico, to locate her missing son. Her son, a twenty-seven-year-old ex-Marine, disappeared two years before after being discharged from the Marine Corps at the conclusion of two tours of duty in Iraq as a scout sniper. The woman requires Kit to travel from Kemmerer, Wyoming, to Santa Fe to meet with her personally. When Kit arrives in New Mexico, he receives a shocking surprise about the identity of the woman and her son. Because the last sighting of the son was in Wyoming, Kit has been hired as a local expert. In addition, the other firms the woman had hired found no trace of her son in two years of searching. Kits partner, Swifty Olson, is sidelined with a broken foot, so Kit enlists his father to assist him in the search. Kit narrows his search to two possible locations in Wyoming that are inaccessible in winter. He and his father search and eliminate one area and concentrate on the Big Horn Mountains above Sheridan, Wyoming. They find some clues and decide to add some help. Kits father enlists the help of old friends from his days in the army, and they discover they are not the only ones searching for the womans son. It seems the ex-Marine sniper was so good at his job that Islamic fanatics have put a price on his head and sent a hit squad to the United States to kill him. Now, its a race to try to find the son before the terrorists and their hired thugs do.
