When photojournalist Sophie Medina returns to London from an overseas assignment, she discovers that her husband Nick, a geologist and covert CIA operative, has been abducted.

With her every move now closely watched Sophie moves home to Washington, D.C. where she is drawn deeper into Nick’s shadowy world. While photographing an exhibit of two never-before-seen Faberge imperial eggs at the National Gallery of Art, Sophie is confronted by a Russian oil tycoon, implicating her former husband.
