The “package” was supposed to be secure in an FBI safe house in the American northwest, but an enemy penetrated security. Two agents are dead and the package that Agent “Aunt Moira” was personally guarding before they killed her is gone. Though still recovering from rib injuries, no one knows Washington State like Navy Seal Hawk Mackenzie. He tracks the killers to recover the “package”, Princess, a Koala bear.
Hawk thinks these pros will not head to Canada, but instead will remain local. He goes to a hotel only to find a woman with a fake identity taking a shower in his room. He assumes she is one of the thieves; he knocks her out. The woman turns out to be hotel investigator Jess Mulcahey working an undercover room switch testing a clerk's management potential. Jess and Hawk become love buddies.
The sequel to CODE NAME: NANNY is an exhilarating tale starring the twin sister of the first tale's heroine and the best friend of the male protagonist from that novel.
