In Dead Man Standing, the Colonel has a plan to get revenge on America for killing his father and brothers in the second Iraqi war. At the Agency, a young Marine veteran, Magdalene (Maggie) Vasquez, is working as an analyst and has spotted unusual activity in the Middle East but is having difficulties in putting the pieces together. She reports these activities to her boss, who agrees that her findings may be important, but others in the agency questions her conclusions. As she proves one finding after another, the doubts continue.

The Colonel has recruited nine Americans fighting in Syria and Iraq to sneak back into America and start planting bombs in nine American cities during the Christmas season.
