On the surface Peyton Stone is a security expert, but he's also a "nonofficial asset," a contractor working for the CIA when the government needs complete deniability. When his business partner is murdered in a Shanghai hotel, ominous ghosts from his past return and he’s drawn deeper into the covert maze, on the hunt for a stolen nuclear weapon and the rogue Iranian admiral hell-bent on using it.
