trace-they are The Lost Platoon.With his men scattered to all
corners of the globe after a disastrous secret op in Russia,
Lieutenant Commander Scott Taylor is trying to find out who was
responsible for leaking the information that killed half his

history of spying, falling for her target. When her attempt at
misdirection leads to irreversible consequences, she's forced to
