In this exciting and "fast-paced thriller that is hard to put down" (Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA), a young reporter must match wits with spies, assassins, and a terrorist sleeper cell that is targeting the very heart of American power.

When Boston reporter Alexandra James is assigned to cover the death of Thom Carlyle, the son of a powerful Washington insider, she soon discovers the story is not as simple as it seems. The young man fell from the top of a Harvard bell tower, but did he jump...or was he pushed?

Focused on what could be the story of a lifetime, Alex chases leads from Harvard Yard to the courtyards of Cambridge, England, from a clandestine rendezvous in London to the inside of a nuclear terrorist network. But when she goes to Washington, DC for a key interview that promises to tie everything together, Alex the hunter becomes Alex the hunted: an assassin is dispatched...her laptop disappears...her phone is tapped. And she begins to grasp that Thom Carlyle may have been killed to hide a terrifying conspiracy within the White House itself.

NPR National Security correspondent Mary Louise Kelly has turned her own real-life reporting adventures into fiction with this stylish spy thriller that is "great fun, from beginning to end" ( The Washington Post ).
