The President of the United States intends to put a stop to some of the worst criminal activity on American soil—drugs, prostitution, and murder. He enlists the help of the specialized DIA agency, dedicated to solving some of America’s toughest problems. Under the direction of Admiral Alton Baker, the thirteen agents—called the Baker’s Dozen—are charged with the task of attacking crime on all fronts.
Among them is Special Agent Jim Thompson. During an assignment, he and others pose as insurance fraud investigators to find a possible connection between the unexplained deaths of a number of the country’s small business owners. The agents eventually discover that all of the deaths are linked to Al Gotto, a top dog drug dealer in the Mafi a who operates out of New Jersey. The agents surmise that the businessmen were killed using an unidentifiable poison.
After further investigation, the DIA learns that the poison is made from a unique fruit grown on a remote island in the Pacific owned by eccentric billionaire Chester Upchurch. Will Thompson and his DIA cohorts be able to stop the indiscriminate use of the poison on American citizens?
