Book Of Love

The plot: Henry Copper—young, English and about as relaxed as a stiff collar—is a novelist. He’s written one book that wasn’t a best-seller and Henry is resigned to its obscure fate. Suddenly his novel is a huge hit in Mexico.

Jen goes on to tell Henry that he needs to fly out there and plug the novel, in person and on social media. Henry barely has a phone let alone a Twitter account.

The plot: Travis Block (Neeson) lives and fights in the shadows. A freelance government “fixer,” Block is a dangerous man whose assignments have included extracting agents out of deep-cover situations.

When Block discovers a shadowy program called Operation Unity is striking down ordinary citizens for reasons known only to Block’s boss, FBI chief Robinson (Quinn), he enlists the help of a journalist (Raver-Lampman), but his past and present collide when his daughter and granddaughter are threatened.

Now Block needs to rescue the people he loves and expose the truth for a shot at redemption. Nothing and no one is safe when secrets are hidden in Blacklight.
