Tommy Carmellini, a CIA operative who is unafraid to walk both sides of the law to attain his objective, uncovers a dark conspiracy that leads to the highest levels of the American government - and to a ruthless manipulator who will stop at nothing to keep a decades-old secret. Book opens as Carmellini is sent to post guard duty at a farmhouse in West Virginia's remote Allegheny Mountains. There, top government operatives are debriefing a star defector: the ultimate KGB insider, a man with records on every operation and every dirty trick the shadowy intelligence agency has ever run, from Lenin to Putin

Wow. Mix Tommy Carmellini and Admiral Jake Grafton into the intrigues and dangers of a presidential convention in New York City, add a dark secret from the past and you get a great book. I hated to put it down, even at 3:30 AM!!! Sleep won, but I was reading again with the first cup of coffee the next day.

Carmellini escapes in a hail of bullets with what seems to be the sole survivor - a stunningly attractive translator, who then steals his car and abandons him after a deadly mountain car chase. But someone else survived the massacre -someone who holds the answeres to a deadly conspiracy.
