Now working for the CIA, ex-chief-of-police Holly Barker joins the elite task force tracking Fay in New York City. As he begins to pick off America's enemies one by one, Holly unexpectedly finds herself face-to-face with the killer, kick-starting a high-speed chase through the canyons of midtown Manhattan, the Metropolitan Opera house, Central Park, and the United Nations Plaza, all to prevent another assassination before Fay disappears again, maybe this time for good.

The story is typical, and unbelievable. I liked Orchid Beach, but this one didn't do it for me.
The narrator was good. The story... not so much.
On balance, one of the worst attempts at fiction I've seen in a long time. The plot line and charater development are non-existent. Sub-plots are completely unrealistic. It is formulaic while providing a most unsatisfactory ending. A highly anticipated root beer float without the ice cream.
