Once a spy, always a spy. And once a renegade . . .
Director Wolfe brings Laynie "in from the cold" to a place of relative safety. However, she will remain free only if she meets Wolfe's three conditions. She must accept the new identity he gives her, and she must meet with an agency "shrink" to address the emotional damage caused by her years undercover. This counselor, handpicked by Wolfe, will evaluate Laynie and determine if she is fit to participate in his secret task force. Moreover, Laynie must remain in Wolfe's witness protection program. The program will hide Laynie from those who are hunting her, but it will also greatly curtail her freedom.
Nothing goes as Laynie hopes. The rules grind and grate on her. They shackle her choices and constrict her movements. She feels controlled and manipulated. Her clashes with bureaucratic culture only serve to tighten the restrictions and send her spiraling downward, out of control.
Meanwhile, in the background, dark forces are at work, forces that compel Laynie to disobey directives in order to save a life. Rather than proving her value to Wolfe's satisfaction, Laynie's risky exploits mark her as a faithless renegade, a rebel whose insubordination may earn her harsh, ruinous consequences.
Laynie must fight to earn her place on the task force—even as unfolding events expose a looming danger. Wolfe's task force has a leak . . . one that threatens them all.
