Dmitry Ivanov always had an affinity for anything with a computer chip. A dangerous man that no electronic lock can keep out. On a business trip to the US, he unwittingly becomes entangled in a conspiracy that puts the nation and himself in grave danger. Hunted by the American Government, Dmitry turns to the one man he can trust – CIA Agent Lucas Gates.
Terrified for her brother, Elena Ivanova arrives from Moscow, unsure of her reception. For the past eighteen months she and Lucas have been dancing around one another after falling for the other during their ‘Russian Incident’. She’s afraid to admit to loving him after losing her husband and fears Lucas may have moved on despite his promise to wait for her.
Lucas promised he would be patient but he worries that Elena will never be free of the past and move on – towards him. When he sees her again he makes another vow never to let her go.
Together they race against time to find out who is behind the plot and why before Dmitry is arrested and charged on suspicion of treason.
