Born in the worst suburb in Pittsburgh, Elaine Brogan is bright, beautiful, and bold. When her father is falsely arrested for passing counterfeit $100 bills, Elaine vows to become a Secret Service agent and track down the man responsible. After barely surviving the arduous Secret Service Training Academy in Laurel, Maryland, she is transferred to bleak and blustery Great Falls, Montana.
But things do not go as planned, and Elaine soon finds herself betrayed and thrown into an adventure that takes her halfway around the world, from dark and mysterious Sofia, Bulgaria, to Moscow, Russia, and finally, to Milan, Italy. In the end, will Elaine find the love and happiness she truly seeks . . . or will she turn to a life of obscene wealth, power, and corruption?
