During the move back to Charleston, South Carolina after the death of her husband, Julia finds the name and number of a long lost lover. With encouragement from her brother, Kevin, she agrees to try and find Adam. After a reinstatement into the FBI, Julia's adventures take her down a dangerous rabbit hole where she discovers Adam was not an artist, but a CIA agent who has been declared deceased (or is he?). She deals with multiple government agencies in the U.S. and around the world-from Russia, Germany, Iceland, China, Italy, and the Cayman Islands-as she chases romance and crooked government officials who have sold confidential top secret U.S. intelligence. But will she find Adam along the way?
