Hollis Fremont has recently arrived in Paris to begin her job as a
"visa slave" at the American consulate. Her return to the City of
Light forces her to revisit tragedy: the mysterious assassination
of her parents by a sniper's bullets fifteen years earlier. Hollis,
an unprepossessingly beautiful young woman, soon attracts the
notice of Paul McGann, deputy chief of mission, whose ardent
attention to Hollis is matched by his violent temper and
calculating treatment of anyone who crosses his path. Hollis's
involvement with McGann will accidentally reveal to her the
elaborate and clandestine para-governmental alliances colluding to
create a new world order - one in which certain high-level
officials and unfortunate individuals, including Hollis herself,
are set in the sights of a hired gun. This implacable killer is
called the Handyman. His relentless, and anonymous, pursuit of
Hollis sends her on an international flight. As she struggles to
elude the Handyman and his colleagues, it becomes evident that she
can trust no one, not even those whose confidences she holds most
