When his long-lost love and new bride Clara was brutally murdered in an Austrian mountain chateau while they were on their honeymoon, super-sleuth and undercover operative Roland Troy quits chasing criminals and retreats to the back woods of Vermont. But when his old friend and former partner McKenzie Rockett travels from Florida to ask a favor, Troy knows he can't say no to Rockett's request for help in solving one last homicide. Troy is partnered up with beautiful, ex-model, Angela Becker, a superb undercover cop in her own right. The two of them quickly find that they are on the trail of something far larger and darker than what Troy and Rockett had initially assumed: an on-going international conspiracy that has spanned not only the decades, but generations as well.
