When Hitler ordered the total annihilation of
the small village of Lidice, Czechoslovakia on June 10, 1942, a pair of newborn
twin girls were secretly hidden from the Nazis while their parents and the rest
of the village were massacred. The son of one of the infant girls, CIA Agent
Myk McGrath, has become the world’s most prolific agent. Now he is on a
frenetic search to catch a cunning group that has
outsmarted the country’s highest intelligence agency and vanished from their
watchful eye. In the midst of Myk’s hunt, a defector arises whose allegiance is
unknown, a defector with ties to Lidice.
China’s top physicist is snatched from his beach vacation and forced to replicate his breakthrough discovery in electromagnetic technology. New York City awakes to a terrifying phenomenon: seventy percent of its electricity has been permanently wiped off the power grid. Myk is in a race against time to find who’s behind the attack and prevent an already fragile U.S. economy from turning into a calamity.
In his pursuit, Myk begins to piece together a lifelong enigma: why his mother and her twin sister abruptly ended their relationship at the time of his birth, and why his mother developed within him the skills that would make him the most prodigious agent the CIA has ever known. The deeper he digs into exposing a devious conspiracy against the U.S., the more he uncovers the stunning truth about the secret lives of the twins from Lidice.
