A botched kidnapping leads the FBI’s Delta A and SAC Ellie Iverson down a dark scientific path. Littered with intrigue, assassinations, mysterious foreigners, and sketchy connections, all culminating in a life-shattering international operation.
On SAC Ellie Iverson’s plate: birthday prep for her twins; an attempted abduction; pressure from her husband to retire from the FBI; a missing accountant, and an American company with a nefarious off-shore agenda that could devastate the world.
Within hours of trying to contact a whistle-blower, she discovers a murdered British scientist and is in the crosshairs of an assassin. A confidential informant from the scientific community reaches out and twists the emerging situation in a worrisome way.
Ellie hauls together a partial plan but in a world littered with intrigue, contract killers, in-fighting intelligence agencies, and suspect connections, can they work together to prevent catastrophe?
