Foreign Service officer, is thrown into a maelstrom of agony when she learns a New York bound flight from England exploded soon after takeoff, like a grim Lockerbie Two.

But she is swiftly embroiled in a twisted series of events that paint her as a terrorist conspirator and a suspect in the airline bombing. Discredited by her own State Department, pursued by the FBI, wanted by Interpol, Casey is a fugitive whose only protection is a small band of skilled agents operating outside of the law.
With her career and credibility in ruins, Casey has only one chance to bring the malicious mastermind behind the bombing to justice before he can massacre any more innocent people. Setting herself up as a fake mediator for U. S. interests, she conceives a dangerous strategy for gaining access to her target. Hurled into a relentless, death-dealing mission, she senses a multi-leveled web of deception tightening around her, forcing her to rely on people she neither knows nor trusts--any one of whom might sacrifice her life for his own corrupt motives.
