When the beautiful auburn-haired confident of the former Louisiana governor was found floating in a desolate swamp near New Orleans, no one in the FBI seemed to care, despite her unrequited cooperation with one of their most significant investigations. Whoever put two bullets in her head, felt bold and immune from scrutiny. While they gloated in their ersatz power, they waited and planned their next murder, the mob's accountant, who not only testified against his former friends, but also hid their inculpating treasures. The mob and a certain governor wanted those treasures and were willing to kill for them.

Antoine Biaggi knew how the mob operated. For years, he kept their books and knew who got paid what, when and for what reason. When he refused to go into the Witness Protection program upon his release from federal prison, his old associates were waiting for him. Even his old childhood friend, Father Joseph Terranova, could not dissuade him from returning to New Orleans and a certain death.

Meanwhile, miles from New Orleans, a young Native American man, Wilson Three Eagles, was preparing to graduate from law school at the University of Montana. With no employment prospects, he joined the FBI with the hope of helping his natal people. But the FBI had other plans for him, and upon graduating from the FBI Academy, he was assigned to a secret task force assembled to investigate organized crime's pernicious grip on Louisiana's public officials and even on the FBI.
