When Vanessa narrowly escapes a devastating explosion at the Louvre, she suspects the notorious nuclear arms dealer Bhoot was behind the attack. But after staking her career on capturing the madman, it seems a new and even greater threat has emerged.
A previously unknown militant group claims responsibility for the bombing and promises even greater carnage. Bhoot himself contacts Vanessa to confirm that a miniaturized nuclear device may have fallen into hands more dangerous than his own.
As Vanessa's investigation leads her to the real terrorists' plans, she finds herself drawn into a perilous alliance with one of the world's most dangerous criminals--a man who has become her darkest obsession . . . and perhaps her savior.
