Suspense builds at a murderous pace in this spy-chasing thriller after "The Photograph" is revealed. Once Pandora’s Box is opened, it can never be shut, is the lesson learned by Ray Martin, an Englishman living and working in America.

Following his divorce, Ray meets Grace, a much younger woman, and they move to Washington, D.C., where she works in the defense industry. The couple rent a condo owned by a secret service agent away on assignment. One day Ray discovers a hidden 35-millimeter camera with film still inside. When he jokes they should develop the film to see what’s on the roll, Grace tells him no. But eventually Ray’s curiosity gets the better of him and he has the film developed. What he discovers plunges them both into a web of international intrigue.

As their lives begin to unravel surrounding the conspiracy uncovered on the film, Ray finds himself smack in the middle of international espionage, corruption at the highest levels of government, and a major assassination plot. Whom can he trust now that lives are on the line?
