A young woman is murdered, and the hunt for her killer turns deadly.
Who's behind the Bay Area bombings? Terrorists or someone closer to the FBI . . .
No one outruns a dirty past . . .
When police pull the bloated corpse of a young woman out of the river, FBI agent Claudia Seagal investigates. First, they have to find out the victim’s identity. No one locally claims to know her. Was she a runaway? Or caught in modern slavery?
As they try to identify the woman, a bombing kills three people in San Francisco, and a new terrorist group claims victory. But the evidence ties into an old case of Claudia’s where a gunrunner died in custody.
Claudia is up for a promotion, and her relationship with robotics expert, Baxter Cruise, is now kind of a thing. When a major investor asks Baxter to join a hot startup company, his professional prospects glisten. But clouds from his dark past threaten to destroy their lives.
While she hunts for a killer, new evidence shakes her confidence. What she thought was solid now quivers, spiraling her closer to a devastating end.
