Court Gentry is back at the CIA after five years on the run. But he wished he had stayed on the outs; his first mission almost cost him his life when two Chinese agents try to take him down in Hong Kong. Normally the Chinese prefer to stay eyes-only on foreign agents. So why are they on such high alert?
Gentry's hunt for answers takes him across Southeast Asia and leads to his old friend, Donald Fitzroy, who is being held hostage by the Chinese. Fitzroy was contracted to find Fan Jiang, a former member of an ultra-secret computer warfare unit responsible for testing China’s own security systems. It seems Fan may have been too good at his job as China wants him dead.
The first two kill teams Fitzroy sent to find Fan disappeared and the Chinese have decided to “supervise” the next operation. What they don't know is that Gentry’s mission is to find Fan first and get whatever intel he has to the US.
After that, he must try to get out alive...
