Susan Whitcomb, a sharp young New York trial lawyer, has learned her craft from the best: her brilliant Columbia law professor, Farlan Adams, who has developed an infatuation for his protégé. Now, she will need every shred of the rigorous mental training he has given her when, without warning, she is catapulted into the vicious world of international terrorism. Susan's well-ordered life is suddenly disrupted when news arrives that her father, an Army general based in Rome, has been assassinated by terrorists - and she is next on their list. That's when a mysterious, driven young man named David Smith, who works for an unknown agency, arrives and announces that he has been assigned to protect her. As revenge escalates and love triangles form, Susan finds herself a pawn in a deadly game of suspense, in which life, love, and loyalty all hang in the balance.
