In his Washington DC office, his door reads: Shaw, Attorney at Law, but he has never fought a case in court. He has no known residence and barely anyone who he can count as a friend. He works for a clandestine agency with no name and no real ties to the government. His true identity is cloaked in mystery.
Tease, once an assassin for a powerful crime lord, now works for an agency no one knows exists. Her face and body has been changed, along with her identity. As Sphinx, she was trained to be a better killer and brought down an operation marketing a deadly new drug called Grandeur. Always a loner, she is forced to work with a team who does not have a problem cutting her throat if she ever steps out of line.
The chase for two deadly men who control nuclear devices nears its explosive end. The tables have turned on Shaw. For years he was the hunter, but now he has become the prey. Assassins from around the world have been commissioned to take him down at any cost. Fighting to stay alive long enough to complete his mission, Shaw knows the clock is ticking ever closer to a nuclear explosion unless he succeeds. With hundreds of thousands of lives at stake, failure is not an option. To make matters worse, a familiar enemy of Tease's reemerges from her past, rekindling their deadly rivalry. This time the killing isn't for business, it's personal.
