Jake Shaw has accumulated a lot of bad karma in his lifetime. As a child, he and his siblings were recruited by the infamous Goren Petrovich, forced to do unspeakable deeds at his hand, often never knowing just what harm they were inflicting on others until it was too late.  Now he’s determined to right some of the wrongs he’s unwittingly committed. As an agent for The Alliance, a security organization specializing in the sort of cases no government agency can or will take on, Jake gets the job done, no matter the obstacles. But when he’s sent to track down beautiful, rogue CIA agent, Tessa Graham, he suddenly finds himself caught in a web of deception that even he couldn't have anticipated. Memories from the past threaten to overtake his current mission as he wades through lies and suspicions…and in the end it may be more than just karma that's out to get him.
