Two years ago, OACET Agent Rachel Peng helped a serial murderer escape from police custody. This morning, he appeared in her backyard, wearing the face of a dead friend from her days in the Army. Within minutes of his arrival, Rachel learns that the head of OACET’s wife has been kidnapped . . . along with Rachel’s niece.
Rachel can’t deny that Marshall Wyatt has helped her and the other members of the Office of Adaptive and Complementary Technologies before, but that was on his terms. This time, he says he’s here to do what she can’t—and as OACET’s liaison to the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, the list of what Rachel can’t be caught doing is long. If she wants to rescue her niece, she might have to let Wyatt do what he does best.
But if she does get caught, Rachel and her fellow Agents might lose everything.
Reviews for the Rachel Peng novels:
“after spending the length of the novel with her, I'm eager to pick up the next one to see what's next for Rachel Peng” (io9)
“If I have any regrets about Rachel Peng, it's that we're unlikely to ever see her front and center on a multiplex screen, cracking wise before she shoots somebody's kneecaps off. And we should. Rachel Peng is a bad-ass for the digital age.” (New York Times bestselling author, Seanan McGuire)
