“A fast paced thriller that is hard to put down. The atmosphere rings true on every page.”
—General Michael Hayden (Ret.), Former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency
Thom Carlyle had it all: the rowing trophies, the Oxbridge education, the glamorous girlfriend. But on a glorious summer evening in Harvard Square, Thom is murdered—pushed from the top of a Harvard bell tower. The New England Chronicle sends a beautiful but troubled reporter named Alexandra James to investigate. It is the story of a lifetime. But it is not what it seems. Alex’s reporting takes her abroad, from the cobbled courtyards of Cambridge, England… to the inside of a network of nuclear terrorists… to the corridors of the CIA… and finally, to the terrorists’ target itself.
As she unravels the threads of the story, Alex the hunter becomes Alex the hunted. An assassin sent to kill her only narrowly misses. Her laptop disappears. Her phone is tapped. And she begins to grasp that Thom Carlyle was killed to hide a terrifying conspiracy.
