Jed Walker has just joined the CIA. As a veteran of Air Force Special Operations, Walker is used to being at the pointy end of things. But normally the front line is much further from home. Sent to New Orleans on the trail of Russians wanting to claim back what was stolen from them in Afghanistan, it doesn't take long for Walker to realise that in the murky world of espionage, the rules of war do not apply. Teaming up with a feisty M16 operative, to do what is right for the nation Walker must take steps that will betray The Agency. As Hurricane Katrina hits, it's clear to Walker that this is a high-stakes game where the winner takes all, and he must succeed. From Langley to Louisiana, Washington to Moscow, The Agency moves like a tempest through a treacherous landscape of double-crosses, false identities, and enemies old and new. Jed Walker is going to be pushed to the limit - of what he can do, what he can take, and what he knows is right.
