When photojournalist Sophie Medina returns to London from anoverseas assignment, she discovers that her husband Nick, a geologist and covert CIA operative, has been abducted. Three months later she is shocked when a friend in the British government says Nick was spotted in Moscow and is now notonly a suspect in his boss' murder but also potentially involved in illicit Russian oil deals. With her every move now closely watched, Sophie moves to Washington, DC, to be with family and friends.
There Sophie is drawn deeper into Nick's shadowy world. While photographing an exhibit of two never-before-seen Fabergé imperial eggs at the National Gallery of Art, Sophie is confronted by a Russian oil tycoon, implicating her former husband. On the run from Nick's enemies, Sophie plays a high-stakes game of Russian roulette as she tries to determine friend from foe and prove her husband's innocence.
Weaving together political intrigue, art history, and espionage, this fast-paced story marks the start of a promising new series.

Flawed plot, and I don't enjoy the narrator
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Sophie keeps making bad decisions in my opinion. Why wouldn't she report when her apartment is ransacked?? There are leaps of faith and streaks of naiveté. I wasn't buying the whole pretense.
If you’ve listened to books by Ellen Crosby before, how does this one compare?
What didn’t you like about Caroline Shaffer’s performance?
I thought the attempt at accents was pretty bad. Why did the DC photographer sound like he was from the Bronx? The Boston accent was hardly "Harvard Yard", more Revere! I was continuously put off by the voices and accents.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
