He survived a mysterious mission more horrible than the mind
can imagine; only she can break through the trauma and get
him to talk. But if she succeeds, they both may not survive.
Dr. Sara West knows only that her high-security military
patient goes by the name "Joe," that he's in a catatonic
state and can only repeat the code words, "I wept," and that
his post-traumatic stress disorder is a result of his last
mission as a Shadow Watcher-a spy who spies on other spies.
Her brother-in-law was also a Shadow Watcher. He committed
suicide in the same sinister military facility where Joe,
and other military men like him, are now in treatment. Sara
wants to learn what caused her sister's unshakable husband
to kill himself and, in the process, to heal Joe, a
compelling man who wins her love. But the secrets inside him
reveal a shocking truth. One she isn't sure they can overcome.
