It's 1972. The Watergate scandal has Washington on edge and Rick Putnam, a Vietnam veteran and courier for a national television network, is trying to get his life back together after the ordeal of war. He's found that pushing his motorcycle to the limit wipes out the terrible nightmares--for a while. But it all turns real when Rick picks up film from a crew interviewing a government worker with a hot story. Within hours, both crew and witness are dead and Rick is in the killer's crosshairs.
