Picture this. One day a relative of your wife's shows up at your door for a visit. But what if you come home one morning and discover that the visitor has usurped your role - and your life? What if the stranger declares that he, in fact, is the husband of your wife and the father of your child? What if the man provides documentation supporting his claim that persuades the police? And, most baffling and horrifying of all, what if your own wife stands by his side in denying who you are and everything you ever were - and barring the entrance to your home to you forever? For Chris Neilson, loyal husband and gentle father, this nightmare becomes terrifyingly real the day he meets Frank Springer, a professional killer whose strength and cunning have made him one of the CIA's prime assets, and whose depravity has made him an object of fear among friends and enemies alike. Chris knows he must wrest back from Springer what is rightfully his, no matter the cost - even as he finds himself the pawn in a deadly gambit that is both sweepingly global and viciously personal in its dimensions.
