Her new associate, Dr. Stanley Cross, is a genius working on an optics program that can put a sensor in a person's optical system and spy on others. This sensor would be a gigantic boost for the Intelligence and Military communities and a big help in the War on Terror.Government agents blackmail and eventually kidnap Cross to manipulate his work, while the new discovery is helping America get one-step up on the terrorists. Maria is suspicious of what is happening to Dr. Cross and tries to help. Her first stop is back in Washington and a talk with her ex-lover Bryan. Worried about her, he agrees to help.Together with CIA friend, Jeff Adams, the two uncover the plot to virtually take over the political life of the country.

I believe that the concept for this book is very interesting. This reminds me of the show Scandal or 24. I even believe this can be compared to the "Bourne" series on the big screen. The only complaint I would have is...it was not long enough. I was so engaged in the book, I wanted it to be everlasting. Please see if this concept can be seen on movies !!!
