Detective Angelo Marquez, of the Chicago PD, arrives at The Cathedral of Saint Thomas Aquinas where he has tracked Father Francesco, a prime suspect in the theft of an ancient relic stolen from the Vatican Private Archives. Concurrently, Detective Ann Polities of DuPage County’s M.E.R.I.T. arrives as the hostage negotiator that Father Francesco demanded to have on-scene, lest he detonate an incendiary and bring down the cathedral, killing everyone inside.
As she endeavors to convince Father Francesco to free the hostages, he agrees to release them on the condition that she meet with him in person. Adding the encrypted statement, “Mordechai sits at the palace gate,” which raises a red flag for Angelo that Ann dismisses in order to secure the hostages. But upon entering the cathedral, the bomb is detonated, and Ann is knocked unconscious and transported to Central DuPage Hospital.
When Angelo arrives at the hospital, he discovers that the F.B.I. suspects her involvement in the bombing and plans to question her when she regains consciousness. Curious about why Father Francesco had insisted on her presence at the cathedral, Angelo convinces Ann to flee the hospital in order to prove her innocence and find the priest.

The wolf came from out of nowhere, a gleaming white streak suddenly appeared through the people and ran at him with a forward springing leap. In half a breath, there was an angry wolf hitting Nikolas in the chest and bringing him down backward to land with it, snowy white and snarling, on top of him, staring down into his eyes, teeth bared in a lunge.
He stared back and tucked his chin as the wolf lunged and everyone reacted, pulling the furious beast off before it could cause more trouble and damage. Nikolas escaped with a couple of decent slits along his jaw, where he had the good sense to tuck, knowing where those teeth were going. Nikolas blinked up at the wolf and let out a cough.
