Sequel to The Society.
The black-ops government agency known as Sigma has
shattered the resistance, destroyed its infrastructure, and taken its best operative
captive. It's about as bad as it can get, but Sigma's forgotten one thing.
Rowan is no longer a civilian in the shadow war. Her talents are almost fully trained, and
she's become something she never dreamed of—a cool, clinical, lethal psionic operative.
Working as Henderson's second-in-command, she's utterly focused on two things:
repairing the Society's infrastructure and rescuing Justin Delgado. Yet under her shell of
calm and gentleness, her rage is simmering… and it's about to break loose.
Delgado knows he can't remember something important. He puts up with Sigma’s
beatings and questioning, the pain and the torture. Sigma keeps asking him the same
question—where is Rowan Price? He doesn't know who Price is or where she is, but if
he can escape Sigma one more time, he's damn sure going to find out. Because Price,
whoever she is, holds the key to his fractured memories and destroyed soul.
problem for him is getting out, and Justin Delgado is very good at solving problems.
Once he's out, nothing in the world is going to stop him from pursuing Rowan Price. But
that may be the one thing Sigma's counting on.
