As a contract agent of the CIA Caf, the agency's black-budget, Contract Agents for Economics, Terry Weston played a clandestine game of espionage against the spy services of Europe in which nobody got badly hurt. But the game becomes deadly for Terry, his wife Maria and their six-year-old daughter when old allies turn into bitter enemies. The Europe where Americans once vacationed is fading from memory. Germany is bankrupt, NATO dissolved. A supersized Greater European Union, led by France and Russia, engages in political brinksmanship to American power. The new leaders of Europe are obsessed with 'the American problem,' that Europe still plays a global No. 2 to the U.S. Even in space, the new frontier, the Pentagon plans to deploy a Space Shield that will give the U.S. military this high ground. But the DGSE spy service has developed a technology solution. Elegant. Mathematical. Devastating. It will make Europe No. 1 in space, and reduce the U.S. military into a fighting force that will have to fight with its fists. Only Terry and Maria can penetrate deep into enemy territory to prevent a stunningly cynical act of sabotage from ending America's days as a superpower. But old friends and even family members can no longer be trusted, as the two great rivals of the 21st century head for a conflict as inevitable as tomorrow's headlines.
