In the tradition-bound culture of the FBI, Karla Davis is considered a “female” agent ﬁrst and “special” agent second. When she uncovers evidence of a Maﬁa inﬁltrator at the highest levels of the New York headquarters, she is rebuffed by male supervisors. Undeterred, she launches an unauthorized investigation, conﬁding in her mentor and her lover, both experienced agents. Opposed by a quarry always one step ahead of her, an elite team of assassins determined to protect the inﬁltrator, and a monolithic institution disdainful of individuality, Karla enters a labyrinth of deceit, murder, and personal betrayal.
