In this the 2nd book of the "E” series, characters and events brought to the reader in Troubled Destiny draw Elaine and Ryan deeper into a quagmire neither of them expected. Their lives after all are filled with work and duties and a newfound love still struggling to take hold and flourish.
Over the next 70 days however, bliss turns to suspicion, tragedy and fear from Istanbul Turkey to the plains of Troy and finally to the bay-city of Izmir, nestled beside the waters of the Aegean.
It is the summer of 1971, an idyllic time for those fortunate enough to grasp it. It is also a period on the edge of turmoil soon to envelope the world when terrorism takes hold with hijackings, suicide bombers, assassinations and the mass killing of civilians as a means to an end. The difference between now and 1971 is the absence of rules; those guideposts that were followed for much of the cold war in an honorable game of spy and counterspy. The rules no longer apply in this age of terror, but even then, they were beginning to slip, making the idyllic susceptible to the hazards of circumstance and fate.
Follow the journey through this maze of intrigue as it ends with one more mystery to solve in the last of this trilogy.
