Marine intelligence officer Chase Reardon finds a chilling kill list thrust inside the mouth of a dead Taliban soldier.
Back home in New York City, Chase’s wife, Alicia must account for her actions during his deployment to preserve her marriage and the fiery passion they once shared. Compounding their problems is Dimitri Ostopenko, the sinister and vengeful Russian mobster determined to vanquish Chase and his family for misdeeds he believes Chase committed against the Ostopenko family. Dimitri’s devious and ceaseless attacks carry a singular message:
Your enemy is closer than you realize.
Entangled family secrets, international arms dealing, murder, and kidnapping form the backdrop of a couple striving to reignite their desire and build their fortunes while fighting for their lives.
