First, get away. Then get revenge.
When terrorists fire-bomb Naomi Kwan’s San Francisco apartment block, her criminal record makes her a target for corrupt officials eager to shelter the true culprits. Innocence is no protection. After all, dead scapegoats tell no tales. She flees her powerful enemies before they can silence her, but she can’t stay hidden forever. As conspiracies unravel on all sides, her fate rests in the hands of allies she doesn’t even know she has.
Naomi only knows freelance investigators Carl Jenson and Eddie Parker as patients and acquaintances, but they view her as a friend–and it’s their case that put her in danger. To fix a mess this big, they need the kind of creative assistance only a retired ally can provide. Inventor Justin Wyatt is in no shape to go adventuring, but when the men who once saved his life need help, he joins their mission without a second thought.
A daring escape and a desperate rescue are only the beginning. Mysteries in Naomi’s past collide with Justin’s secrets, and unraveling the plots that tie them together leads to explosive consequences.
