When her husband accepts a new job in Luxembourg, Kate Moore thinks she is leaving her topsecret life in the CIA behind. It's the perfect opportunity for her family to start again as expatriates in a genteel, European city with a new home, new friends and a new life.
But when Kate and her husband, Dexter, are befriended by another American couple, Kate can't help but sense that they may not be who they say they are. She begins to monitor them, mirroring their clandestine investigation even as they become closer friends, going out in the nightclubs of Paris and skiing in the Alps. For Kate, it's essential that she find out if her past has come back to haunt her family, to see what loose end she may have left undone...
