"An exhilarating read that could easily be a blockbuster on the screen." - Kirkus Reviews
And she thought facing a firing squad was bad…
When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, a powerful and ambitious US attorney who has his own reasons for wanting Mara back on US soil.
What starts off as a rescue mission morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington, DC. Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to resist the heat that flares between them. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they uncover a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of government.
