It’s a race against time to discover the truth as the CIA, M16, and NISS (the National Intelligence & Security Services of Ethiopia) are forced to act with only minimal information. Will they uncover a plot to abduct the US Ambassador to Ethiopia? Two super agents, Lisa from the USA and ‘the Prof’ from the UK, are charged with solving the issue, their personalities often clashing in spite of their mutual attraction. Their search for a stolen but critical audio file takes them to New York, London, Ethiopia, Kenya, Egypt, and El Salvador. Signs of an abduction show the possible fingerprints of Al Quaeda together with that of Al Shabaab from Somalia. Suspension and tension mount as the agents fall in love, struggle to make sense out of a garbled, ambiguous but threatening conversation. It leads them on a wild goose chase, causes them to believe half-truths, make wrong assumptions, and take several miss-steps. Could Orthodox priests be involved? The reader is led down paths with unexpected twists and turns. Finally, in a hair-raising, dramatic climax, the issue is resolved. The question is, will the couple live to tell the tale?

In hurt and anger, he demands to go to Puerto Rico on assignment. An assignment they haven’t fully prepared for. The drug lord known to them only as Vargas is possibly the most vile, ruthless man the Bureau of Drug Enforcement has ever faced. Sandy’s boss, Jeff Hand, best friend, Jimmy Bauer, and Jeff’s secretary, Angela Crawford, listen in horror to a recording of Sandy being tossed overboard fifteen miles out at sea. And who knows what his condition was at that time. But where, only a week after the miscarriage, has Samantha disappeared to?
