A SECRET CHINESE ORGANIZATION. THE CIA. THE U.S. NUCLEAR LAUNCH
CODES. AND A DEADLY GAME OF ESPIONAGE WITH THE FATE OF THE WORLD IN
Before she became Agent Scarlett Caso of the NPDIA, Maris Correa was a CIA officer enlisted
for only the most dangerous missions. With ONCE KILLED TWICE DEAD, E.S. Brown
presents the Cuban-American superspy in a twisting and bending thriller that could be straight
out of an Ian Fleming James Bond adventure.
The U.S. nuclear launch codes program is compromised and CIA Officer Maris Correa is
recruited to track down those responsible. As she navigates the streets of Hong Kong and the
countrysides of mainland China, Maris quickly discovers her targets are not who they were
presented to be, and the true nature of her involvement in the mission is more dangerous than she
ever would have predicted.
Forced to team with a young and inexperienced CIA officer, Maris learns that the Gold Codes
heist may not be the intended mission after all. Every revelation leads to more uncertainty, and
before long, Maris and her partner are facing death and deception at every turn as the United
States is left defenseless and on the cusp of being thrust into an international incident.
Each passing moment increases the danger for Maris, her partner, and the entire world. As
treason takes hold of the mission, Maris struggles to navigate the life-and-death operation that
consumes intelligence agencies on multiple continents, leaving millions of people in danger.
