A genetically enhanced teen on the run. A rogue general on the hunt. And a homicide detective sucked into the chase.
A decade ago, a rogue general murdered Emily Brelin’s parents and abducted her. He trained her alongside elite soldiers. He groomed her to be a teen spy and expected her to become a female assassin. He forced her to commit crimes.
Three years ago, Emily’s genetic structure changed and new abilities emerged which enabled her to escape. She fled across the globe to Golden City, New York’s largest metropolitan area.
There, she met a sympathetic professor who offered her a new home, a new identity, and a new start…until cancer intervened. On her deathbed, she made Emily promise to meet her best friend, a female detective who could keep the girl safe.
Now, despite reservations, Emily is racing to complete her vow. But the general wants his prized teen weapon back. He’s hunting Emily–and her cover is unraveling.
Detective Vick Tacket is shocked when she learns her best friend has died. She’s more stunned to learn the professor had a hidden dependent and named Vick–a single women with no maternal interest–as the girl’s guardian.
But when the mysterious teen disappears, Vick scours the streets of Golden City searching for the missing girl.
What she discovers could get them both killed.
