Jack Beckett returns in the tenth book of a gripping series. Peter Vox, a once-famous artist, is kidnapped. Agent Riley O'Connor is assigned to the case, and when she walks into her bedroom, she finds a man sitting in a chair who warns her to slow-walk the investigation. When she turns to get her gun, a struggle ensues, and O'Connor is knocked unconscious. Jack Beckett arrives just as the intruder jumps out of O’Connor’s window. Events unfold that make this the strangest case yet for Beckett and O’Connor. They discover that Peter Vox has early-stage dementia. His kidnappers are Russians who want something from Vox before his memory is gone. O’Connor is pulled off the case, replaced by an agent from Washington, D.C. for unclear reasons. To get to the bottom of things, O’Connor and Beckett take a charter flight to Las Vegas where they soon realize to get to Vox they must take on the Russian mafia. Eventually, Beckett and O’Connor must travel to Russia to find a mysterious cylinder the Russians desperately want. They travel under fake identities. The danger is high; if their true identities are known, they could be arrested as spies. It’s a risk they decide to take to get to the truth.
