After the loss of her husband, CIA agent Isabella Bendel accepts a promotion to Chief Supervisor—a much less dangerous position than what she's accustomed to—so she can raise her two children without fear of leaving her children without any parents. But any illusions of safety are shattered when, while on her Sunday morning jog in a Washington, DC park, Isabella survives a brutal assassination attempt. She hauls her assailant into CIA headquarters, confident she can get to the bottom of why he was after her. Her blood runs cold when she learns the truth... as he was trying to take her out, armed terrorists abducted her children and mother right out of her home. Pushed to the brink of what any mother can endure, Isabella calls on all of her training and deadly skills to get her family back. During this mission, she fights her way through assassins, cyber-terrorists, and duplicitous fellow agents, leading her to uncover a Russian threat that is hell-bent on destroying the United States.

About the Author:
As a writer, I’ve long been fascinated by the world of espionage. Working as a CPA in New York, I’m constantly inspired by the sights and sounds of a large city, and how that forms the perfect environment for a fast-paced thriller. Given our currently unstable political climate, as well as the Russian hacking of the election, I knew that now was the time for a spy story set in the world of political cyber-espionage, led by a fierce female protagonist.

A CIA director is targeted by Russian terrorists. Her family is kidnapped, and it's up to the director to save her family. Spellbinding, each chapter is a cliffhangar. I read the entire book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. It's an exciting thriller with well developed characters and a believable storyline that starts out with a bang and doesn't let up from there. I was surprised to learn this was the author's debut novel. I'm looking forward to reading her next book. Highly recommended!
