Baker & Taylor
Returning from a harrowing mission only to receive a cryptic message from her sister, Kat Polinski is horrified when her sister is subsequently murdered and investigates possible clues pertaining to a controversial international security project.

Blackwell North Amer
In an age of advanced electronic surveillance, personal privacy has become an outmoded concept and few actions go unobserved. When Kathleen "Kat" Polinski, an undercover agent for the U.S. Government, carries out a routine break-in at the Kazakh embassy, she finds the staff massacred. Hours later Kat learns that her own sister, Suzy, has been murdered in a lonely spot outside of London. What was Suzy doing there? Is there a connection with the embassy killings? Are both related to Project Peace, an impending international security agreement that threatens freedom in the name of stability? All the answers lie in a hidden computer file Suzy called The History Book.
To find the truth - and Suzy's killer - Kat must use every weapon at her disposal and every ally she can find, including her racketeer former boyfriend from O.C.'s south side and a taciturn British operative and his fragile sister. As she hunts, Kat knows she can run but she can't hide from her enemies and government watchers. She must now face them and fight - for her survival and the rest of the world's as well.

Soon after, she learns that her sister Suzy has been murdered--shot with a highpowered rifle in a desolate spot 100 miles outside of London. What was Suzy doing there? Did it have anything to do with the controversial Project Peace? An international security agreement, Project Peace allows constant surveillance and loss of individual freedom in the name of stability and order. Kat must use every weapon at her disposal, from martial arts to computer hacking, to bring her sister's killer to justice. But in her search for answers, she discovers an increasingly plausible threat that could destroy the world as we know it....
