CIA agent Rett Spenser believes in protecting the innocent from harm, even when it requires unfathomable personal sacrifice. Stationed in Hong Kong, she's at the top in the high-stakes world of international espionage -- stealing, seducing, even killing, to acquire information crucial to U.S. security.
But something goes terribly wrong on her last mission to retrieve stolen documents and she wakes up in her hometown of Seattle with a near-fatal bullet wound and gaps in her memory. Tasked by her irate handler with finding the missing documents, and with her career on the line, Rett starts with the only lead she has -- an art gallery owned by Shannon Kent, her prime suspect, and a woman she once rescued from danger. Rett and Shannon risk everything as their quest takes them deeper into a world of lies, deceit, and evil. And finally to the shocking truth.
