Two brothers are on the run from an enemy that specializes in hiding in plain sight. Who can they trust but each other?

Brothers Pat and Coop have just been reunited after a narrow escape from a cult-like community living beneath the streets of New York City. Now they are on the run — above ground, this time — with their new companion and fellow escapee, Kate. Certain that they are being followed, the three struggle to stay one step ahead of their trackers while searching for answers about Kate's mysterious past. But have these brothers found each other again only to spend the rest of their lives as fugitives? Or will they ever be able to return home?
