A Christmas blizzard threatens to bury the Nation's capital in nearly two feet of snow. Directly in the path of the blizzard of the century sits the bedroom community of Friendship Heights. The village locals all know a few inches of snow can cripple the Washington D.C. Area and they are prepared. Unknowing travelers, however, are at the mercy of the snow storms. In a quirky twist of fate, international hit-man John Garrett blunders into his assignment with stoic perseverance and is nearly killed by an unknown assailant before he can find his target in Friendship Heights. With the city crippled over the Christmas holiday, Garrett finds himself stranded with a pretty woman linked to two murders and likely to be the third victim unless Garrett finds the murderer in time. But unknown to Garrett, another silent, bigger danger threatens his life and his time is running out.
