About the Book
A sabotaged CIA operation makes Navy Trent a captive. But surviving the kidnapping is just the beginning of her ordeal. The CIA will kill her if she doesn’t stay quiet. The saboteurs will kill her if she does. Navy is forced into a high-tech, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse where only her wits – and a little bit of luck – can keep her alive.
Navy was in the parking lot of Butterfly Mixed Martial Arts Studio at ten to six by habit. Only Mark’s truck was in the parking lot.
The small duffel bag with her workout clothes bounced against her hip as she walked. When she entered, Mark was sitting at the desk in the entryway typing on his laptop. He waved her in, his expression no different from normal.
Mark shut the laptop and nodded.
“Was he—is he all right?”
“I don’t get involved in lovers’ spats. Jackson is Jackson. He’ll be fine.” He pointed to a white box sitting on the corner of the desk. “He left you something.”
The box was the kind that held a department store shirt. She weighed it in her hands; something heavy shifted inside. A scrap of paper taped to the top of the box read “Don’t hate me.” She pulled the thin cardboard lid up.
A pistol was nestled in a bed of bubble wrap. She dropped the package. A box of bullets popped open and three of them spilled onto the floor, rolling like misshapen gold marbles. Like the shells that had fallen at her feet in the basement of the mansion. Her mind carried her back to her execution chamber, pulling on the pants of a man she had killed, feeling the pool of his blood go from warm to clammy. She saw the Brit’s smirk while she stood over him. She felt her right hand curled in the shape of the machine gun’s trigger. She wondered now if she had read the Brit all wrong. He hadn’t been smiling because he thought he would get his pistol in time. He had been smiling because he could see what she had become—would become. They had made her a killer.
