Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While in Paris, New York Mirror reporter Eric Truell lands the scoop of a lifetime. But when a maverick CIA agent starts leaking explosive, highly sensitive secrets to the savvy journalist, his career skyrockets.

As his ties to the CIA deepen, Truell becomes tangled in a dark web of espionage and murder that spans from Washington to Beijing.

Uncovering shattering truths in a realm of deceivers, and even more shocking lies in the world of journalism, Truell will make a perfect spy. And an even better victim . . .
