A blown mission and a dead team leave Adam Hayes the last loose thread in a tapestry of betrayal in this latest high-stakes international thriller from the world of Robert Ludlum.
The CIA has a source in the Haitian National Bank who can provide proof of corruption at the top of the American intelligence community. The evidence is on a hard drive in the bank’s main office. What should be a simple smash-and-grab mission is blown wide open when a powerful element in Haitian intelligence is threatened by the breach. The CIA team’s only hope for survival is a speedy extraction.
None of this matters to Adam Hayes. Currently, the most pressing issue on his mind is planning his son’s upcoming fifth birthday party. After years of operating in the world’s most dangerous spots for Treadstone, he’s ready to call it quits, but the feeling isn’t mutual.
Levi Shaw, Treadstone’s director, calls Hayes back for one more job. “It’s a walk in the park. You don’t even have to go in with the strike team. I just need you to set up the safe house. You’ll be home in time to pick up the birthday cake.” But nothing is ever easy where Treadstone is concerned. When the mission is blown, only Hayes is left alive, and everyone, it seems, is determined to correct that oversight.
