Hardened Navy SEAL Michael Stanton walked away from his career a year ago and never had any intention of returning. But when his former commander calls with the bad news that an old friend of his was murdered while undercover, Michael can't say no to helping track down the culprit.
Aware that the next dead body might be his own, Michael agrees to take his deceased friend’s place at the home of a terrorist. His official mission: Find all he can to bring this crook's operation down. His personal mission: Find out who murdered his friend and return the favor.
Mercy's sister was employed as a maid at the terrorist's home. When her sister disappeared, the police couldn't find any leads about where she might have gone or what happened to her. Mercy isn't nearly so complacent. She decides that, since they can't help her, she'll be the one to save her sister if it's the last thing she does.
Michael and Mercy meet up inside the terrorist's house, where suspicions--and passions--flare instantly between them. Neither of them are what they're posing to be, but can they find a way to work together to uncover the truth they both need to know? Or will the terrorist get wind of traitors in his home and take care of them before they can take care of him?
