The political thriller "Patriot" follows the complicated life of
intelligence officer John Tavner. His latest assignment is to prevent Iran from going
nuclear, requiring him to forgo all safety nets and assume a perilous
"non-official cover" -- that of a mid-level employee at a Midwestern
industrial piping firm. A bout with PTSD, the Federal government's
incompetence, and the intricacies of keeping a day job in the "front"
industrial piping company, cause a barrage of ever-escalating fiascos
that jeopardize Tavner's mission.
