It's the deadliest poison known to man.
He's the only one who knows its true power.
She's the only one who can stop the evil.
The chase is on. . . .
Number-one bestselling author Iris Johansen showcases one of
her most fascinating characters yet, pitted against one of
the most ruthless killers, in a novel that will make you
forget to breathe. . . .
Catherine Ling was abandoned on the streets of Hong Kong at
age four. Schooled in the art of survival, she traded in the
only commodity she had: information. As a teenager, she came
under the tutelage of a mysterious man known only as Hu
Chang---a skilled assassin and master poisoner. As a young
woman, she was recruited by the CIA and now she is known as
one of their most effective operatives. Having lived life in
the shadows, Catherine is aware of the wobbly moral compass
of her existence and even more aware of just how expendable
she is to those she deals with. When her old friend Hu Chang
creates a formula that's not only deadly but completely
untraceable, the race begins to be the first to get it. With
rogue operative John Gallo also on the hunt, Catherine finds
herself up against a group so villainous and a man so evil
that she may not survive in her quest to protect those she
cares about: Hu Chang and Luke---the son who was stolen from
Catherine and only recently brought home safe. Using all of
her formidable skills, Catherine Ling proves the age-old
belief that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Iris Johansen is at her page-turning best in this novel that
takes you from the corridors of Langley to the alleyways of
Hong Kong and the darkest places of the human soul.
