|Plot Summary of At Risk|
Knopf, Jan 2005, 24.00
The al-Safa organization of the Islamic Terror Syndicate is planting a spy. Pakistan cooperates and the Immigration Office combs the lists for possible suspects. However, the M-15 and M-16 attendees know how difficult to uncover a spy is as these terrorists are a special breed being a native of the host nation. An agent just in from Islamabad corroborates that al-Safa is a rare Islamic terrorist organization because it welcomes full blood Caucasians.
M-15 agent-runner Liz Carlyle sees her work as a means to avoid her matchmaking mother and a place to hide from her married lover, Mark Callendar, who is no longer convenient. The need to track down the spy becomes imminent as the evidence mounts that something big is about to occur.
