His luck runs out when BAD intercepts an unexpected tip on the number one threat to United States security: the Fratelli de il Sovrano. Their best hope for uncovering a deadly plan that risks countless lives and threatens economic chaos just days before the presidential election is to capture a mysterious informant known as Mirage.

Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love are a great team and their B.A.D (Bureau of American Defense) series is filled with romance and suspense.
