On the eve of his revealing the names of his associates to the authorities, Erik dies mysteriously in his cell, and all eyes turn to his widow, Lauren Scott. Unable to handle the criticism, she leaves the country but returns to clear her name when an opportunity arises. Erik's powerful backers have put plans in place to destroy all evidence of their ties to the dead businessman, and they see Lauren as the final obstacle in their path. Realizing how bad things have gotten, she turns to former government agents Nick Seven and Felicia Hagens, who have a talent for cracking cases. Only time will tell if they can help her before matters get out of hand in Tim Smith's One Way Out.
