Marcus Jones, a CIA agent, has a final mission assigned to him from his CIA mentor. His mission is to gain intelligence and prosecute two American citizens. One of them is an arms dealer, Frank Smith and the other is a hedge fund manager, John Redvale. Marcus is able to get a job as Frank Smith's bodyguard. During this job, he goes with Frank to Redvale's building. At this building, Frank's goal is get $100,000,000.00. However, on the way to the building assailants attack Frank and Marcus' vehicle. At this time, Marcus' CIA mentor, Dietrich and other CIA mentors are in a helicopter above them. They realize that the assailants want the $100,000,000.00.

Marcus and Frank are still alive after this attack. When this attack begins, Frank has a heart attack. After the driver is killed, Marcus drives and escapes the assailants. He takes Frank to the Detroit Medical Center so he can be saved. While there, the assailants (CIA traitors) come back and kill off the hospital staff. Marcus is able to kill some of them until he gets abducted by Floria (Zoe Bell). She brings Marcus to the leader Zander (Gary Daniels). Marcus gets hit unconscious and the assailants leave him there so he can be at fault for the deaths. When the assailants leave, they take Frank and a doctor to Redvale's building to find the $100,000,000.00.

Redvale decides that the assailants should have the $100,000,000.00. In his plan, he decides that later he would kill them. At this same time, Marcus gets an ambulance at goes to the building of Redvale to get the doctor and kill the CIA traitors. After doing this, Marcus gets away from the Detroit Police and escapes with a bag of money which has about $25,000,000.00. When Marcus leaves the church where he is making his confession, he leaves that money at the church.
Best part of story, including ending: I really liked the story because it had a lot of action. I also liked it because Marcus, even after doing criminal activities, is still forgiven.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when Marcus goes back to the building of Redvale and saves the doctor. This is my favorite because it shows that he wasn't going to leave a man behind.

Opinion about the main character: I like Marcus because he tracks down his mission and fulfills his mission the best that he can. He also follows the code, never leave a man behind. He is very committed.
