Sydney's conscience struggles with her job, which too often asks her to work with criminals she'd much rather put away. She understands the logic the small fish versus big fish pragmatism but that doesn't make acceptance easier. Someone else is less conflicted and is assassinating APO's shadier contacts. Only the calling card of a black star with the number 13 in its center hints at the culprit.
When it becomes clear that a highly trained and lethal vigilante organization is interfering with APO's missions, Sydney must put aside her empathy and help shut down the mysterious "13 Stars." But after Sydney herself is mistaken for a freelance terror agent, she worries that the mistake is not so far from the truth. And now that she's marked, both her cover and her welfare are in immediate jeopardy.
