Nick Kegan is the brother of President Timothy Kegan who was assassinated 19 years before. One day, a dying man confesses to him that he was one of the gunmen who killed his father and that the gun he used then is still hidden in Philadelphia with his fingerprints on it.

Nick Kegan decides to start his own investigation, along with his father, but the people who could help him are murdered one by one or drive him towards false leads.
