Former CIA officer Valerie Plame and Sarah Lovett, authors of the “tense spy thriller”* Blowback, return with a globe-hopping, nerve-shattering new novel featuring covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson.
When Vanessa narrowly escapes a devastating explosion at the Louvre, she suspects the notorious nuclear arms dealer Bhoot was behind the attack. But after staking her career on capturing the madman, it seems a new and even greater threat has emerged.
A previously unknown militant group claims responsibility for the bombing and promises even greater carnage. Bhoot himself contacts Vanessa to confirm that a miniaturized nuclear device may have fallen into hands more dangerous than his own.
As Vanessa’s investigation leads her to the real terrorists’ plans, she finds herself drawn 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.
