Government secrets are being sold and the newly-sworn-in President of the United States already feels out of options. Without knowing the full scope of the scandal, the president decides to turn to the one person he knows he can trust—former FBI Agent, Elizabeth James. Her deep distrust of the system is rooted in her unfair discharge from service.
The book follows the life of a girl born in Afghanistan during the Russian occupation, before the fall of the Berlin Wall. She becomes a U.S. citizen because a CIA operative adopts her and brings her to America, renaming her Holly Smolkes. A beautiful but seriously flawed woman, she falls in love with the director of Homeland Security’s “Poison Well” unit, a group designed to stop terrorists who want to poison the water supply of the United States.
