CHAPTER ONE

Kidnapping the chief of Military Intelligence Section 6 was the stupidest thing I’d done in my life. It was only by the sheer goodness of Z’s heart that he didn’t kill me or allow his rescuers to do it.

Instead, he’d agreed to help me after I’d finally convinced him the woman who was not only the love of life but also the mother of the child I’d only recently learned of—my child—was missing but still alive.

Everyone who served on the United Nations Coalition Against Human Trafficking was certain she’d been killed. After all, they’d watched her die in a hail of bullets seconds before she was about to kill another of our agents who she’d abducted.

Except it wasn’t her. Instead, it was her twin, a twin neither she nor we knew existed.

“I’m sorry, Puck,” said Decker Ashford, a man who didn’t work directly for the coalition but was the adopted son of the guy I’d kidnapped and widely accepted as one of the best intelligence agents in the world. “The lead was solid. It appears we missed them by a matter of hours at the most.”

I nodded, looking around the empty one-bedroom apartment for any sign of DeDe “Seshat” Starkweather.  If only there were a way we could assure her the threat against her life had been neutralized and she no longer had to remain in hiding.

If only there were a way I could tell her how sorry I was for not protecting her, for not being there for her when she needed me, and for not telling her I loved her more than life itself.

“Hey, Puck, I found something,” said Magnet, another MI6 agent and coalition member I’d know and worked with for years.

I raised my head when he approached. “What’s that?”

“We found it taped to the bottom of a drawer in the kitchen.”

He handed me a photograph of a baby. My eyes filled with tears when I flipped it over and saw a name written on the back. Linnea, it read.

“Do you think it’s significant?” Magnet put his hand on my shoulder and asked in a soft voice.

“I know it is. Linnea was my mother’s name.”
