Never underestimate a woman who survived.
Suspense, international intrigue and romance, set in Melbourne, Australia.
'…give everyone a different part of your story, then the gossip will be all about putting your story together, not questioning it.'
After 4 years teaching in central Africa, Caitlyn Lancaster returns to her family in Australia, telling them she's been sent home because of looming political unrest. But Cait is more fragile than she and her Federal police handler anticipated. She's forced to accept that childhood family friend, now police detective, Riley Duncan must be told the brutal truth if she is to keep herself and her family safe.
With Riley's support, Cait begins to recover her strength but civil war erupts around her friends in Umoja and her harrowing secret becomes the key to that nation's future.
Putting her faith in her handler, Cait takes the ultimate risk only to discover that Agent Koffa has failed to take into account one vital detail…he's not as good at his job as he thinks he is.
