It's an early morning on a beach in Virginia when Arman Bajalan discovers a dead body. Convinced that the murder is connected to his work as an interpreter in Iraq, he knows he's still not safe.

Seasoned detective Catherine Wheel and her fresh-off-the-beat partner have little to go on beyond a bus ticket in the man's pocket. But as victims mount around Arman, they find themselves in a deadly race, committed to unravelling the truth and keeping Arman alive - no matter the cost.
