Covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson has dedicated her
career to capturing one man: Bhoot, the world’s most notorious nuclear arms
dealer. That mission has been impeded by the murders of her assets, who were
betrayed by a mole within her own agency. When she narrowly escapes death
during a devastating explosion at the Louvre, Vanessa immediately suspects that
Bhoot was the architect of the brazen terrorist attack. But when a previously
unknown militant group claims responsibility for the bombing and promises even
greater carnage, she is forced to rethink her initial assumptions—especially
when Bhoot himself contacts her to deny responsibility and confirm her
suspicions that a miniaturized nuclear device may have fallen into hands more
dangerous than his own. Of course, Vanessa knows Bhoot can’t be trusted. But
she begins to fear that a new and even greater threat to the world’s fragile
balance of power may have emerged.
As Vanessa’s investigation leads her ever closer to the
identity of the mole and the real terrorists’ plans, she finds herself drawn
against all her better instincts into a perilous alliance with one of the
world’s most dangerous criminals—a man who has become her darkest obsession … and
perhaps her savior.
