A mysterious high-profile homicide in the nation's capital
collides with the dark side of national security in David
Baldacci's new, heart-stopping thriller.
Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police
force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She
lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent
two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and
focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot
to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own,
and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even
with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in
the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any
reason to send Mace back behind bars. Then Roy Kingman
enters her life.
Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a
high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy
meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at
the firm. As they investigate the death, they start
uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and
public world of the nation's capital.
Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a
terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex,
diabolical, and possibly lethal.
