In summer 2011, the orderly life of Manhattan architect Archer Landis is upended by the murder of the woman he loves. When, to his surprise, the authorities link her to the Arab American community, their reflexive conclusion is “terrorist.” Landis sets out to prove them wrong but is hindered by additional mysterious attacks on everyone and everything he holds dear. To overcome these tragedies—and to survive—Landis must confront prejudice, self-doubt, the limits of loyalty, and a need for redemption that transcends revenge.
