Frank Thorpe, a man in his early 40s, is recently retired from an off-the-books USA intelligence unit. Thorpe is smart, tough, and playful, but his loner status and temperamental streak inhibited his rise within the unit, and indeed he was forced into early retirement for all the wrong reasons. At an airport, he watches a rich business man, a man named McCall, literally trample a young Hispanic boy and not look back. He decides to teach McCall a lesson...he won't do him any real harm, but he wants to give the man a Wake Up...a term used in the unit when one wanted to remind a restless contact of his or her vulnerability. Just a taste of payback, a slight upset in the guy's sunny world...Thorpe just wants to teach him some manners. One last good deed. Tragically, when he tries to monkey with the guy's life, he sets up a chain reaction which ends in far more serious ramifications than Thorpe could ever have anticipated. He now has to clean up the mess he created, and, by extension, redeem his life. It's going to take all his skills, and the help of ex-spook Billy, a man who does nothing without being paid back.
