When turncoats betray America’s human intelligence assets, there is no greater failure than the loss of life—and no one knows that better than FBI Special Agent J.J. McCall, a born lie detector who recruits foreign spies to catch American traitors. She and co-case agent Tony Donato have lost two of their most critical Russian sources in the past two years, and they may lose another in just a few short days if they don’t catch him. The ICE PHANTOM. Code name for a near-dead investigation initiated to identify a rumored insider spy more insidious and elusive than Ames and Hanssen combined. After a decade of fruitless investigations, the Intelligence Community fears it might be chasing ghosts—but J.J. and Tony suspect he might be burrowed deep inside FBI counterintelligence. And his body count is going up.
Drawn into an unsanctioned mole hunt, J.J. and Tony have a week to catch ICE PHANTOM, save a key source’s life—and their own. While J.J.’s lie detecting ability helps them narrow down the list of suspects, the ultimate lie, the one she’s been telling herself for too many years, may help the ICE PHANTOM defect to Moscow and get away with the murder of the man she cannot live without.
Skye’s debut FBI Series, filled with mystery, espionage, romance, and suspense, will keep you burning through the pages until J.J. catches the very last spy.
