Not everybody quits the intelligence community to spend a
few weeks in a Moscow airport seeking asylum.
Harry thought he’d go back to the career in publishing he started out
on. The one before the CIA got a hold of
him. The offer of a steady job got him
into “the company”, losing his wife to dots he didn’t connect sent him packing.
Harry was lucky. Not
many men get a second chance at a career and not many guys in their forties
catch the eye of an attractive, ambitious twenty-something like Jenny.
Now Harry’s got a problem.
Jenny wants to be a part of his life and Harry is scared that the job he
never really left will kill the only other person he’s ever fallen in love
That’s because Harry’s world is still a dangerous one. Intelligence is like a certain west coast
hotel. You can check out any time you
like, but you can never really leave.
