About the Book
Coincidently powerful psychological forces, difficult to keep in check, threaten to nullify her accomplishments. In her personal life, the one her superiors must not learn of, she continually battles her organizationally unacceptable secret urges. Drawn into an ever-widening vortex of secrets that culminates in a secret mission to civil-war-torn Chad, the young officer must prevail over her fears and employ her cunning. In her battle between undercover triumphs and personal transgressions, Barbara must step gingerly to save her career, her reputation, and possibly her life.
