"Fresh off the rescue of her daughter from the clutches of a Russian terrorist, Diana Weick’s problems are far from solved. Upon her escape, Taras Kushkin managed to take her ex-husband Rex Tennison captive while maintaining his grip on his other hostage, a previous member of Diana’s SEAL team. And there seems to be a suspicious relationship forming between Kushkin and enigmatic hitman, Alek Fedoruk. Diana is recruited by MI6—for her first-hand experience and knowledge of Kushkin— in an attempt to stop him from selling a military combat drone to a Saudi Arabian air force official. Someone else tries to recruit Diana for her skills as well—a group calling themselves the Readers, an organization of ex-soldiers and SEALs who oppose anything to do with the United States Military."
