In Espionage, as in Politics and Love, you never really know who the Good Guys are. When disgraced Israeli intelligence officer Jacob Rostov emerges as an assassin-for-hire, he is elusive, efficient, and prepared to eliminate anyone. But he is only the sharpened tip of an even deadlier spear. A ruthless paramilitary organization with connections to the U.N. is intent on becoming a new international Gestapo, and with Rostov on their leash, U.S. senators, federal judges, wealthy bankers, and even Russian mafiya dons are helpless prey.As Elen Biran, a beautiful Israeli, and Kevin Edwards, her unlikely American suitor, become the latest prey, the organization doesn't know that a dangerous mole is in their midst, digging for information. Elen and Kevin, suddenly prime suspects in a federal murder investigation, quickly realize they can't trust anyone-not even the FBI-and are thrust into a cross-country race for their very survival. Meanwhile, the mole, hoping to establish his bona fides, continues to commit crimes so horrible the relationship between the United States and one of her closest allies could be destroyed forever if the truth ever leaked out.Following a trail through Tel Aviv, Munich, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington D.C., Rostov, a weary warrior stained with innocent blood, must become as ruthless as his enemies if he is to accomplish his mission and ascend the ranks of the true powerbrokers of the world. But when an unexpected romance with a beautiful American threatens to derail his mission entirely, he can't help but wonder . . . is he really one of the Good Guys, or have his actions damned his soul forever?
