It’s antagonism versus attraction in this non-Talanov stand-alone thriller as a headstrong rookie profiler with the CIA competes with a charming Texas journalist to identify and stop a notorious terrorist.
FROM THE COVER:
Abu Nazer is the world’s most elusive terrorist. His identity is unknown, his list of crimes — unimaginable. But Abu Nazer knows the CIA is closing in.
Which is why he must change identities.
He devises a scheme involving an ancient stone tablet discovered in the Sinai Peninsula in 1919. The tablet makes a stunning declaration about Jerusalem that has the CIA running scared. They fear he will use it to ignite Armageddon. And Abu Nazer has been using that fear against them because someone at the Agency has been leaking him information.
Analyst Zoe Gustaves stumbles onto the leak and begins digging for answers. But all she finds are more questions. Who are her allies? Who are her enemies?
Seeking answers can be deadly when everyone has secrets.
