Defense contractor Dana Thompson does a double take one day in Rome, thinking that he has just seen his dead wife, Katie. And, it gets worse.
As Thompson digs deeper into the circumstances surrounding his wife's death, he comes up against what may be an uncomfortable truth: Katie may have been a secret agent.
It's as much a love story as a runaway thriller as Thompson tracks down those who formerly worked most closely with Katie, a globe-hopping network journalist before succumbing to a particularly virulent strain of breast cancer more than a year earlier.
Thompson must also come to terms with the dual-edged nature of his profession as he seeks clues to Katie's last few months. His work as a defense contractor sometimes seems to run counter to the need for a lasting world peace.
An enigmatic Italian named Gian Carlo may hold valuable clues to Katie's apparent double life, as Thompson recalls hints of a back channel relationship between the urbane Italian and his wife. It's a tangled web of international intrigue that unfolds before Thompson's unbelieving eyes.
And the mystery only deepens as yet another shadowy figure emerges with information about Katie's apparently duplicitous life.
Things don't get any better as Thompson's son, Brandon, surfaces to berate his father about his absentee role as father over the years -- the unfortunate side effect of his life on the road, hammering out arms agreements in far-flung corners of the world.
You'll turn the pages eagerly as the novel rolls to its satisfying -- and surprising -- conclusion. Was Katie Thompson a spy? And if so, for whom? Will Thompson rediscover love in the midst of a lingering ache for Katie? And will he forge a new relationship with his estranged son?
This extraordinary five-star book examines the harsh reality of a world in which massive arms deals are cut with surprising ease every day in faraway conference rooms, seemingly oblivious to the widespread carnage resulting from such transactions.
But there’s also a haunting love story thrown in for good measure; and these are certainly characters you won’t soon forget as they search for elusive answers to thorny questions about the possibility of a lasting peace in a war-torn world.
