The last person to do his job died suddenly, and now his apartment is under surveillance and his movements are being watched.
Was the previous researcher's death really just an accident? Or something much worse?Trapped in the middle of a terrifying conspiracy, Quinn is forced to consider stepping outside the law to save those he loves.
But who can be trusted? And can he survive long enough to find out...
