    • Synopsis
    • Sincere, hardworking, well educated Hill staffer MAGGIE JENKINS fights terrorism. She has identified her target but all of her efforts are thwarted by unlikely enemies in the CIA and influencers of national intelligence on the Hill whose perception of danger has not changed with the times.
      MAGGIE’s target is someone who doesn't fit anyone’s terrorist profile so it is difficult to convince the old school intelligence community of the danger, especially when the target is so captivating. This enemy, a stunningly beautiful Chechen named ZARA BARAYEVA, is willing to risk her life and kill anyone, even groups of innocent victims, to avenge the death of her brother, a freedom fighter who was killed by American anti-terrorism operatives. Beautiful ZARA is from a predominantly Muslim country but “terrorist” would be the last term that comes to mind when describing her. ZARA’s striking appearance turns heads wherever she goes and her western demeanor and dress encourage trust. She can travel easily, her open face disarms strangers but she is silent and deadly.
      MAGGIE and ZARA are formidable opponents. They are strong, determined women, from disparate cultures, fighting against each other savagely in pursuit of truth and revenge.
