All his wife Sydney wants is the man she married back. But he’s lost, buried deep beneath his anger. Sydney files for separationand throws herself into her work as a journalist.

But when Sydney hunts down the soldiers behind a string of heroic interventions, she starts getting death threats. Finding the perfect ending for her story might get her perfectly killed. Max realizes what Sydney has entangled herself in and will stop at nothing to save her, but even he might not be able to rescue her from a world of intrigue and danger that she cannot imagine.
