An abandoned baby brings back paralyzing memories for a tough-as-nails negotiator for the Department of Defense. Tired of being everyone else’s pillar of strength, L. Madison Steele longs for the luxury of being weak-just once-but too many people depend on her. Framed for espionage and murder, Madison must reach deep into her soul if she is to recover stolen biological warfare secrets and ultimately save the world.
Lt. Jon Colter, son of a psychic hypnotherapist and a militia leader, knows a terrifying secret: that far too many people-from the Iraqi government to international terrorists to backyard militia groups to the kid down the street-have access to biological weapons and reason to use them. Reluctant to accept his own psychic gifts, Jon makes it his mission in life to protect Madison Steele. Only Jon has seen the cracks in her veneer. Only Jon has heard her weeping in her sleep. Only Jon shares with her an ancient past and a dangerous future.
