(From the publisher):
Pat Nolan, an American man, is summoned to Paris to claim the body of his estranged daughter Megan, who has committed suicide. The body, however, is not Megan's and it becomes instantly clear to Pat that Megan staged this, that she's in serious trouble, and that she's calling on him for help.
This sends Pat on an odyssey that stretches across France and into the Czech Republic and that makes him a target for both French police and a band of international terrorists. Joining Pat on his search is Catherine Laurence, a beautiful but tormented Paris detective who sees in Pat something she never thought she'd find-genuine passion and desperate need. As they look for Megan, they come closer to each other's souls and discover love when both had long given up on it.
Juxtaposed agsinst this tory is Megan's story. A freelance journalist, Megan is in Morocco to do research when she meets Abdel Lahani, a Saudi businessman. They begin a torrid affair, a game Megan has played often in her adult life. But what she discovers about Lehani puts her in the center of a different game, one with rules she can barely comprehend. Beause of her relationship with Lehani, Megan has made some considerable enemies. And she has put the lives of many-maybe even millions-at risk.
