We get Catherine Ling's background story finally and get to see her get closer to her son Luke and deal with John Gallo. I enjoy how her books just pull you in and don't let you go until you're done. ( )

Catherine Ling is a CIA operative who has just returned from a mission but gets a call that her friend and mentor, Hu Chang needs her help. Actually the CIA wants to use Catherine to draw Chang out in the open so they can either catch him or kill him. Chang has created a poison that leaves no trace, which of course someone wants to use to kill somebody Important. This is a fast-paced story even though it has a lot of background information about how Catherine and Chang meet. Enjoyable read and has made me want to read the previous book that included some background about Catherine's son's rescue. ( )

Book description
It’s the deadliest poison known to man.

He’s the only one who knows its true power.

She’s the only one who can stop the evil.

The chase is on....

Catherine Ling was abandoned on the streets of Hong Kong at age four. Schooled in the art of survival, she traded in the only commodity she had: information. As a teenager, she came under the tutelage of a mysterious man known only as Hu Chang---a skilled assassin and master poisoner. As a young woman, she was recruited by the CIA and now she is known as one of their most effective operatives. Having lived life in the shadows, Catherine is aware of the wobbly moral compass of her existence and even more aware of just how expendable she is to those she deals with. When her old friend Hu Chang creates a formula that’s not only deadly but completely untraceable, the race begins to be the first to get it. With rogue operative John Gallo also on the hunt, Catherine finds herself up against a group so villainous and a man so evil that she may not survive in her quest to protect those she cares about: Hu Chang and Luke---the son who was stolen from Catherine and only recently brought home safe. Using all of her formidable skills, Catherine Ling proves the age-old belief that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
