Former butler Mae Valentine accepted the risk-filled life Major Hamish Kitt led when she married him. He's out of the field, now teaching novice spies how to be spies. Then an accident—or terrorism—drags the couple to tulip fields and sex shops in charming, deadly Amsterdam. Suddenly, it's extortion, nasty little plants, and a bar full of monkeys. As treachery unfolds and bodies pile up, the past, once dead and buried, resurrects to make their future an impossibility. A wife, a, dog, a home. Three things a spy like Kitt isn't supposed to want. Can it be happy life, happy wife, or will Mae's history destroy everything?
