Book Synopsis



W. E. B. Griffin's #1 New York Times bestselling series finds Presidential Agent Charley Castillo in the middle of an investigation into kidnapping, assassination, and even political scandal in this action-packed thriller.

With the woman's children and family now at risk, Castillo's running out of time to uncover the connections and truth behind it all.
