By Greg Rucka
The hunt for their enemy leads a special forces team to a much darker threat in the second thrilling novel in the Jad Bell series by New York Times bestselling author Greg Rucka.
She is undercover. She is pretending to be in love. She is ready to attack.
She is undercover. She is pretending to be in love. She is ready to protect.
In the aftermath of a failed plot against America, Jad Bell and his team are sent after those behind it. But they can only find the middle man, not the mastermind.
Something far worse is coming. And at the heart of it all are two women: an American spy and a terrorist operative, both living lies so deep they cannot even trust themselves.
The stakes are higher, the clock is ticking, and the enemies are hiding in plain sight...
