Held in an isolated Cuban prison, DIA Agent Hannah Geary vows vengeance on the man who had her put away to cover his traitorous activities. Now, Hannah must find the truth behind her partner's death and uncover the incriminating files- before she herself is killed. Navy SEAL Lieutenant Luther Lindstrom is searching for the vanished DIA Agent Hannah Geary, the only one that can help him clear his fellow SEAL, Jaguar, from a wrongful court martial. Exposing the real culprit, Commander Edward Lovitt, is impossible without Hannah and the information she has on Lovitt's weapons trafficking. When Luther finally finds Hannah in Cuba, she was already climbing the prison wall on her way to freedom. Now, with the notebook stolen, Hannah and Luther now must scrounge for evidence while staying one step ahead of reprisal. Luther sensed the danger in his instant attraction to Hannah and makes it clear that the feisty and fearless isn't his type. He refuses to give his heart to her...until it's suddenly too late. Hannah falls prey to the enemy. Lovitt's his mysterious backer who has no name but what's known by on the FBI's most wanted list: The Individual.
