Greer Whitaker is a rarity in politics: a brilliant tactician as a campaign manager, as well as a man of principle. But when his conservative candidate for the Senate is arrested just weeks before the election, a devastated and disillusioned Greer is ripe for the picking, and the CIA taps him for a sensitive, potentially explosive national security operation. A young idealist of the new conservative right, Greer is more determined than ever to serve his country in some meaningful way and, in doing so, to restore his now tainted reputation. So keenly does he feel this sense of mission that he never questions why he has been singled out for the job. Indeed, his confidence is running so high that he also never doubts his ability to handle the heated love affairs with two sexy but dangerous women who cross his path. Only after people start dying does Greer realize he's been duped - and at what cost. The heart-hammering suspense is unrelenting as Greer - initially blinded by his own hubris - now sees that he has unwittingly put his own life and the nation's security at risk, and must scramble for a way out of the deadly labyrinth.
