Book Description: In 2001, Alex Trask a covert field agent for the CIA is in Egypt researching the financing of a dangerous terrorist cell. When things go horribly wrong, he is forced to face what he believes is personal responsibility for a tragic event that both changes the world and alters his life. Years later, still haunted by his failure and suffering from shock and loss, he leaves the Agency and chooses to move from the hectic life of Washington to the Caribbean to pursue the quiet life he believes can help him heal at last. This is not to be, and forces beyond his control once again draw him into a world where he struggles to make sense of both his own grief and a threat that challenges the world he knows. Will he be able to act to stop the crisis, or is the whole horrible event he believes he faces only an invention of a troubled mind seeking justification at last? The story draws him from the Caribbean to Britain and back to his old haunts to try to redeem himself.
