Robert Cannon has developed his computer software company into one of the most successful in the industry, often working on highly confidential, government contracts. Cannon uncovers proof of corporate espionage. When he contacts the FBI, it is revealed they have already been investigating the sales of classified software from Cannon's corporation to foreign governments. The FBI's only trail leads to Evie Shaw.

Cannon's determination to handle his own investigation leads him Evie Shaw's small hometown in Alabama.

But is everything as it really appears? When he sees her for the first time, she is nothing that he expects. As he tries to untangle the conspiracy, he gets caught up in his own manipulations. He begins questioning the facts and his reasons for spending so much time with her. Is she a traitorous spy or just an unsuspecting victim……
