Lieutenant Lena Stillman has been left, nearly alone, on her code-breaking mission in remote Alaska. World War II has been over for a month, but due to crimes committed a lifetime ago, Lena is still under the control of the powerful Miss Maggie. Shaken by her role in the disappearance of Corporal Link Hughes—and by her own misjudgment of him—Lena yearns for redemption. In this sequel to Speakeasy, she receives a message containing Link's potential location: Siam. Embarking on a clandestine rescue mission to Bangkok, Lena finds it impossible to know who is good or bad, and whether they are motivated by love or revenge.
