From the Publisher
America has enemies--ruthless people that the police, the FBI, even
the military can''t stop. That''s when the U.S. government calls on
Will Robie, a stone cold hitman who never questions orders and
always nails his target.
But Will Robie may have just made the first--and last--mistake of
his career . . .
It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a
target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something
about this mission doesn''t seem right to Robie, and he does the
unthinkable. He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target
himself and must escape from his own people.
Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl,
a fourteen-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn''t an
ordinary runaway-her parents were murdered, and her own life is in
danger. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her
and finds he can''t walk away. He needs to help her.
Even worse, the more Robie learns about the girl, the more he''s
convinced she is at the center of a vast cover-up, one that may
explain her parents'' deaths and stretch to unimaginable levels of
Now, Robie may have to step out of the shadows in order to save
this girl''s life . . . and perhaps his own.
