As head of the covert mercenary organisation, The Committee, Isobel Lambert comes into contact with some of the most dangerous people in the world. But beneath her cool exterior a ghost exists, haunting her with memories of another life... a life that ended long ago.
But Isobel's past and present are about to collide when Serafin, mercenary and assassin, makes a deal with The Committee. Seventeen years ago Isobel shot him and left him for dead. Now it looks as if he's tracked her down for revenge. But Isobel knows all too well that looks can be deceiving... and that's what she's counting on to keep her cover in this international masquerade of murder.
