(From the publisher):
Fifteen years ago, Katie Schottland snagged her dream job as an analyst for the CIA. She worked for the Agency for a glorious two years, just as the Soviet bloc was collapsing, and the Cold War coming to an end. Then she was shown to the door, without an explanation as to why she was fired.
Katie spent the next few years agonizing over her loss and her own shortcomings until she gave birth to her son and, soon after, a novel called Spy Guys. Now she writes for a cable TV series spawned from her novel, but still misses the espionage work she once loved.
A phone call from a former colleague changes everything. The woman, once involved in preparing high level refugees for their new American lives, begs for Katie's help in return for answers about her past. She, it seems, can explain why Katie so suddenly became persona non grata. But can Katie go from writing the fluffy, fictional Spy Guys to surviving in the world of espionage where the bullets are real, and hardly anyone lives happily ever after?
