A Single woman - a complicated life
International, super-model Sadie Stewart meets her Dutch lover Sebastian Wilde in Venice to celebrate their six month anniversary in style. But having lived a double life as a CIA operative for ten years, her life is never simple.
During a charity costume ball in an ancient Venetian palace, an assassin tries to take her out. Sebastian gets over-protective, which drives her crazy. Her old boss offers her information, but wants something in return.
Arms-dealer, Bakari al-Sharif is planning to steal more ancient Egyptian treasure. This time he’s after a scarab from the tomb of Tutankhamen about to be revealed at Highclere castle near London. Sadie is the only person who has ever gotten close to al-Sharif and lived. The CIA wants her to stop him.
Or at least that’s what they say. When it comes to the world of espionage, the true motivation of the players is never clear.
Can Sadie return to the life of a spook and maintain a relationship with Sebastian? Can she nail the arms-dealer? Can she figure out why the masked man tried to kill her?
Life is complicated for Sadie Stewart.
