When John Smith arrives in San Francisco’s international airport, he is not there for a business meeting. He is a paid assassin. His next target? Thirty-three-year-old Abigail Morgan, the best CIA field agent the San Francisco branch has ever seen.
Thanks to Agent Morgan’s excessive street-smarts, she manages to evade him, but future "John Smiths" aren’t as easy to deal with. Hospitalized and within inches of death, someone is still relentlessly stalking her! Realizing that this is a fight she just can’t win, she vanishes from existence, resurfacing thousands of miles away as Allyson Rowe, a quiet small-town bartender, not an ounce of the confident and assertive Agent Morgan left. Bartending might not be as exciting as CIA work, but at least she will be safe.
But suddenly life isn’t so safe anymore when a man appears in the bar, sits in the same stool each night, and stares. At her. Is he just a persistent suitor or could he be something infinitely more devious?
When even the best among us have a price, Agent Morgan must discover what it means to truly be alive before it is too late, and maybe even catch the mastermind behind it all, along the way.
