Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Jessica heard footsteps crunching in the gravel  behind her. She whirled to see who was coming and  found herself face-to-face with a young-looking guy  wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, a baseball cap  that looked too big for him pulled down low on his  head. He's not old enough to be a spy, she thought,  disappointed. He looks more like a lost Little  Leaguer. He must be a student, Jessica decided,  eyeing the SVU Engineering logo on his sweatshirt. She  moved to the edge of the path without a word,  planning to let him walk by.

"Um...miss?" the  young guy said tentatively. "Were you waiting  for a package?"

A totally unexpected thrill  raced through her as Jessica realized that the guy  was Nick's contact after all. She'd pulled it  off!

"Yes," she said, holding out her hand.  "Do you have it?"

The guy hesitated for a  second, then extended a paper-wrapped parcel the size of  a large textbook. Jessica tried to curb her  excitement and nervousness as she took the package from  him. The unusually long brim of the contact's  baseball cap sheltered his face, and Jessica couldn't  see him well under the shadow it created. Even so  she got the distinct impression that he was tense,  edgy--maybe even dangerous.

"Very good,"  she said airily, trying to disguise her fear.  "I'll make sure the consulate gets these documents."  She tucked the package under her arm and waited to  see what would happen next. Nick's contact looked  up at her for a second, seemingly confused, then  ducked his head, hiding his face again.

"Aren't  you supposed to give me something too?" he  whispered hoarsely. Was she? Jessica racked her  brain, trying to think. Of course! He expected to be  paid for his documents, just like the guy she'd met  before. A cold sensation of fear coursed through  her as Jessica remembered how angry the other  contact had become when he'd discovered she'd had no  money. How could I have made the same stupid mistake  twice? she asked herself frantically. Her  breathing quickened--she had to think. Who knew what this  guy would do if she stiffed him? He might even  kill her! But Jessica didn't have any money. In  fact, the only thing she could possible give him  was...

"Here," she said abruptly, extending  Lila's hatbox. "I think you'll find everything  in here."

The contact nodded, taking the  hatbox awkwardly by its pink string handles. A split  second later he was sprinting down the path at a  dead run. Oh man, Jessica groaned to herself as his  thin form receded into the night, Lila's going to be  furious! The thought of her best friend's certain  displeasure temporarily marred Jessica's triumph,  but it took only a few seconds for Jessica to put  things back in perspective. If Lila was truly her  best friend, then of course she'd want to do her  part to help solve this mystery. And after all,  Jessica told herself, looking down at the bundle she  now held in both hands, I got the package. I just  know this is the key to all Nick's secrets!  Jessica smiled with satisfaction as she made her way  back down the pathway toward the stairs and from  there down to the parking lot. The science lot was  deserted except for her Jeep and one or two other cars  parked around the edges. As she walked toward the  Jeep, Jessica congratulated herself on the fact  that she'd driven to the meeting. Even though she  hadn't originally planned to, now she'd be able to  get back to her room that much faster to open up  Nick's package and see what it contained. She knew  it was documents, of course--she'd learned that by  eavesdropping on Nick's phone conversation--but  what type of documents would they be? There were so  many different, exciting possibilities.Jessica  turned the package over in her hands as she walked,  feeling its weight. It didn't look like  much--especially not after all the effort she'd expended to  get it. The tightly taped brown paper that covered  it was completely without markings to reveal its  contents. "What little secrets do you hold?"  she asked it in a playful whisper.

Suddenly a  dazzling light ripped through the darkened parking lot,  blinding her. "Freeze!" thundered a  voice from somewhere nearby. Jessica faltered,  terrified. She couldn't see, but she could hear running  footsteps closing in from all side. "What...?"  she tried to ask, turning toward the voice. "I  said freeze! Don't move or I'll shoot!"
