Against impossible odds, a young woman embarks on a dangerous journey to uncover the murderer of her father. Her path collides with agent Kevin Lone, who is on a mission to infiltrate a deadly North Korean spy ring that seeks nothing less than the destruction of the government of the United States. The fast-moving plot is complicated by a mysterious activist who has threatened to set off a bomb in Washington, D.C.

Inspired by true events, this upmarket commercial thriller expertly mixes multiple voices, suspense, deception, and murder in a fast-paced format.
