Or does it?
The day Ray Shelby has been dreading most has finally arrived. The torturous battle against his wife’s cancer is drawing to a bitter close, and her disease is about to steal her away from him forever.
Devastated by his imminent loss, and with time running out, Ray strikes a bargain with a shadowy organization whose promises to cure his wife sound too good to be true.
And they may be.
For as the bill comes due, Ray learns he must choose between saving the woman he loves and surrendering his own humanity to an unfathomable evil.
Ex-CIA analyst Kurt Vetter is no stranger to tragedy and loss. Swearing off any connections to a life he once lead, he retreats to South America on a self-imposed exile. But when he receives a mysterious package of encrypted files from his dead brother, he's drawn back into a dangerous world of treason and espionage-a world he swore he'd left behind for good.
It's up to Kurt to uncover the message that his brother was desperate to convey-a message that could be the difference between life and death. When the files lead him across the world, he encounters Amanda Carter, an enigmatic woman linked directly to his brother, who just might have the information he needs to decipher what's hidden inside the files. Together, they uncover a plot far bigger than anything he ever anticipated.
