A series of violent and highly successful bank robberies have been carried out across New York City, all by the same five-man team. The thieves are slick, efficient, well-organized and vicious. The FBI is getting nowhere in tracking them down. With pressure from Washington mounting and the heists continuing, the Feds desperately search for leads. Across the city, Sam Archer is in town for a funeral. At the service, he is approached by an old family friend who works out of the FBI’s New York office. He’s leading the case against the thieves and has a proposition for Archer. He needs the English counter-terrorist cop to go undercover and try to get inside their circle and gain their trust. Given his English accent and his cover story, it’s a solid plan. They’ll never connect him to the FBI. Archer is ready to refuse, but his old acquaintance tells him something else, a shocking revelation that ties Archer to this case personally. It’s all the convincing he needs. He agrees to the plan, and goes undercover.
