A transplant patient inherits more than just a heart from her unknown donor in this fast-paced espionage thriller from a novelist hailed by fellow writer Clive Cussler as ‘a master of intrigue and adventure’.
After brilliant Washington attorney Beth Convey suffers a heart attack during a high-profile trial, a transplant saves her life. When she recovers, she is shocked to realize that she has new abilities and tastes. Most disturbing are her violent, realistic dreams.
The search for her donor’s identity leads Beth to Jeff Hammond, a disgraced former FBI agent. Now a top Washington Post reporter, Jeff is searching for a missing Soviet defector who has settled in the Washington area. Only in Moscow is there a larger group of retired KGB. Meanwhile, Justice officials are frantic to find the mole who has compromised American intelligence.
MESMERIZED is a heart-stopping rollercoaster ride through the FBI’s corridors of power and the dangerous streets of the new Moscow to the final, devastating showdown at the home of American democracy itself.
