The main plot of "The Librarian" follows David Goldberg, a University librarian in Washington, D.c., as he takes on the side job of cataloging a private collection of papers for Alan Carston Stowe, a power-hungry billionaire. Set against the backdrop of the U.S. presidential campaign -- Augustus Winthrop Scott (Patriot Act wielding, terrorist-stomping incumbent) vs. Sen. Anne Lynn Murphy (Vietnam Veteran, medical doctor, liberal), Goldberg must uncover what Stowe and his cohorts (particularly the mysterious and ever-present "Gray Man") are planning in the event that their man loses his election.
Due to a series of wrong place/wrong time events, Goldberg finds himself running for his life, from government-employed hitmen. He enlists the assistance of the Director of Homeland Security's beautiful wife and two librarians with surprising strengths of their own.

When Murphy begins to do better in the polls, Morgan suspects that the Murphy campaign has planted spies in the Scott campaign. He suspects Goldberg. Morgan uses his beautiful wife, Niobe, to try to catch Goldberg.
