|Plot Summary of Sleeper|
St. Martin's, Mar 2005, 22.95
In 1992 Paris, sixteen year old Samantha Williamson of Asian descent watches Americans kill her adopted parents. North Korans “adopt” her following the tragedy insisting she is one of them and renaming her Sung Kim. They train and brainwash her to be the ultimate spy-terrorist causing havoc in the United States.
NSA Director Philip Carter learns that an Asiatic woman stole the Madonna, valued at $15 million, from the home of Lyman Davidson. Philip believes the deadly Sung Kim is the culprit and fears she is escalating her campaign to devastate those in power. He assigns FBI Special Agent Puller Monk to stop her. Besides a gambling problem, Puller believes he has Alzheimer's and that he is already in the second perhaps third phase.
