Fresh off the red-eye from Baghdad, CIA analyst Lee Carruthers has to hop an Air France flight to Morocco. Alicia Harmon has disappeared from her office in Fez after reporting that she has found a new line of money going to terrorists. When Lee gets to Fez, she can’t learn what Alicia knows because her files are encrypted, but she soon finds herself the target of attacks and may soon be the next one to disappear. When the Palace takes a hand, she knows it’s big. Her investigation reveals that an important Islamic charity is laundering money for terrorists, and the head of that charity sends her to join Alicia in a terrorist camp in the Algerian desert.
