In the aftermath of a midnight raid on a critical defense contractor, Boone Hildebrandt finds herself entangled in a covert plot: one meant to transfer missile defense technology to a foreign power. When a White House Senior Staffer dies, Executive Branch players become suspect in a budding case of international intrigue.
Deducing the international intelligence agency InterLynk has involved itself in negating the initiative, a Senior Advisor to the President orders the Director of National Intelligence to bring the private firm under control. The task falls to his new Senior Case Officer and on-again love interest: call her Boone.
Torn between conflicting loyalties, she is challenged to balance duty, secrets, and developing faith as events test her personal and professional fortitude. Powers romantic, domestic, and international emerge equally determined to overcome any opposition. Boone and InterLynk must press forward in a dangerous contest; in threatening the peace of the Northern Hemisphere, the stakes allow no choice other than playing to win.

About the Author
Dale Amidei lives and writes on the wind- and snow-swept Northern Plains of South Dakota. Novels about people and the perspectives that guide their decisions are the result. They feature faith-based themes set in the real world, which is occasionally profane or violent. His characters are realistically portrayed as caught between heaven and earth, not always what they should be, nor what they used to be. In this way they are like all of us.
Dale Amidei's fiction can entertain you, make you think, and touch your heart. His method is simple: have something to say, then start writing. His novels certainly reflect this philosophy.

The best thrillers prognosticate current events. The 'deep state' and worries about a certain Hungarian billionaire capitalist's chummy relationship with the Democratic political machine weren't in the public mind when this book was written, but it neatly lay out a plausible scenario of government run amok, untouchable politicians who unapologetically sell America's best interests (and weapons) to foreign globalists, and the interplay of globalism, radical jihad, and corruption. Doctor Rebecca Boone Hildebrant is the antidote to a globalist-infested government. And ... it's hard to say what happens without ruining the plot, so I won't. All I can say is "I bet they don't have this much fun at the Red Cross..." Read the book ... you'll get the reference.
