After a decade of bouncing from one black op to another, Shelby Parker left the Federal Security Agency.

Now six months since she left the government, Shelby is at the Denver FSA office wondering why handler Ethan Calder needs exclusively her to look into the disappearance of fifteen people connected to The Center for Bio-Psychological Research.

Shelby applies for work at the Center in order to get close to key researchers, Dr. Ruth Carson and Dr. Jonah Thomas. She quickly realizes she is not alone when she uncovers FBI agent psychiatrist Mac McRae working an inquiry from the inside. The two pool their efforts though it grates Shelby, who always works alone. As they work together under the covers and undercover, they must save a pregnant woman carrying a special genetically altered fetus who is the prototype of a future obedient soldier who will be sold to the highest bidder. That is if they live long enough to do so for even safe houses are unsafe.

The story line moves so fast, the audience never is able to catch their breath even when the heroic duo takes a sexual time out.
