Sedona Ramos is a dedicated public servant. Fluent in
three languages, with looks that allow her to pass for
Hispanic, Native American, or Middle Eastern, she is a
valuable asset to the super-secret National Security
Agency. When she accidentally stumbles upon a mysterious
series of satellite images revealing activity at a
shuttered nuclear facility in war-torn Iraq, somebody
wants her dead.
With danger lurking at every turn and not knowing who
among her colleagues might be involved, Sedona risks her
life to get the information to the one person she can
The implications of Sedona's discovery are clear and
quite possibly catastrophic. Potential suspects include
foreign terrorists, high-ranking Cabinet members, and
assorted others. Whomever the president picks for this

Vaughn Elliott is enjoying her self-imposed isolation on
a remote island, content to live in quiet anonymity. But
when old friend Katherine Kyle brings an urgent SOS from

millions of lives.
Will Vaughn and company unravel the mysteries in time?
The trail of clues stretches from the Middle East to
Washington. The list of people who want to kill them is
long. And the stakes have never been higher...
