Jason Steadman is a 30-year-old sales executive living in Boston and working for an electronics giant. He's a witty, charismatic guy, and well liked at work -- but he lacks the "killer instinct" that would move him up the corporate ladder. All that changes when Jason meets Kurt Semko, a former Special Forces officer just back from Iraq. Jason gets Kurt a job in Corporate Security and soon good things begin to happen for Jason. His career takes off -- he's an overnight success! But when Jason discovers that Kurt has been secretly paving the path to his success in a most efficient manner, he tries to stop him -- and soon finds that his new best friend has become the most dangerous enemy imaginable.
