Susan Greenhow, a writer of well researched thriller novels, has attracted the attention of the wrong kind of reader and it could cost her dearly.
In January 1990, members of the East German Ministry for State Security (Stasi) attempt to destroy or remove records that might incriminate them. At the urging of his Russian controller, one agent removes files about collaborative operations with the KGB. Two decades later, Susan Greenhow writes thriller novels for a living. She takes great pride in doing her own background research. Tactics in one of her books may be linked to a bomb attack in Turkey that kills two American tourists.
At a book signing, Greenhow meets Deva Demaris. Shortly afterward, someone tries to kidnap Greenhow. She is rescued by another thrill writer, Gregory Hanson. Greenhow likes both Demaris and Hanson, but neither Demaris nor Hanson trusts the other. Demaris says she is a New York based fashion consultant. Hanson’s book biography claims he founded and sold a computer software company. Who are they really? What connection, if any, does either one have to her attackers? Greenhow feels certain that it’s all linked. The challenge is to stay alive long enough to figure out how.
