What if the person you married neglected to mention he was a member of a notorious family of Liberian arms dealers?
Sonia Johnson, native New Yorker, attorney, and daughter of a U.S. Senator, never expected to find herself a virtual prisoner in Liberia, but her husband—the country’s new president by way of coup d’etat—won’t let her take their son back to the States. The only way for her to protect her son from her husband’s enemies is to spy on her new family for the C.I.A. If she gets caught, her son will grow up without a mother—if he grows up at all.
