Spring brings changes: for Boone, the joy of an expectant mother. Both the U.S. and the Russian Federation see tumultuous presidencies reach unexpected ends; in Moscow, the cause is death at the hands of an InterLynk associate.
Washington political operatives seek to shore up a legacy of failure in order to preserve their party's viability. In Russia, a resurgent movement exploits political turmoil to propose governance in the style of the last century's Cold War. To those ends, all pursue a family on the run in the Mediterranean: loved ones whose safety is critical to ensure an assassin's testimony.
Thrust into an international, unavoidable contest of deadly professionals, Boone's challenge is to summon her faith and overcome fears inhibiting decisive action. Justice, integrity of governance, and the narrative of history in two countries await the outcome.
