Back Cover Blurb
A year ago, Alexis Parker turned her back on everything she knew. Walking away from the Office of International Operations proved to be both the easiest and hardest thing she had ever done. However, her newfound life in the private sector is turning out to be anything but the cushy desk job she imagined.
Now ghosts from her past have come to haunt her. Running into a former acquaintance while retrieving a painting in Paris sends Alex spiraling back to the life she hoped to leave behind. Buried traumas from her last mission at the OIO are unearthed when similarities force the present to collide with the past. Those she believed to be friends quickly become enemies, and enemies soon become allies. It’s a minefield of uncertainty that can have deadly consequences if she places her trust in the wrong person.
Meanwhile, the dynamic is shifting between her and James Martin, the man she had once been hired to protect. The two are standing on an emotional precipice, teetering on the edge of will they or won’t they. It will all reach a crescendo as blood is spilled and sacrifices are made. Survival isn’t always a guarantee, but merely a whimsical dalliance.
