The Assignment is a suspense novel inspired by a true story. Desi and Rob Riley were clandestine agents when Desi was arrested and tortured in Beijing for espionage. The CIA knew her husband might trade Sino-American intelligence for his wife's freedom. Riley became the target of a global manhunt to terminate him before he reached China, and his journey is a fascinating tale of ingenuity and bravado. After miraculously securing Desi's release, the Rileys retired along with their haunting nightmares. Rob became a successful private investigator and Desi joined a prestigious law firm in Los Angeles. Life was good until one evening a telephone call changes their lives, sending them on a voyage of terror, and taking them full circle to relive the horrors of their past.
