After four years in San Francisco, Leah lands back in Seattle in desperate need of a job. Broke and out of options, she jumps on board with a startup that caters to extreme sports junkies and seemingly has a bright future. But then the economy crashes, the company goes into a spin, and Leah’s future is in jeopardy yet again.
Meanwhile in a parallel universe, the Informant comes to life in Seattle in September 2008. She’s been sent there by the Order to protect her new boss, Alexander, and his nightclub, from the threat of an unnamed assassin. As the Informant grows closer to Alexander and he begins to trust her, she discovers the deeper layers of corruption that finance the club. But the biggest mystery still remains: the fact that it’s impossible for her to remember her own past.
As Leah fights to keep her job at her new company, the Informant races against time to uncover the identity of the assassin, and how and where they will strike. But what neither knows is that whatever happens in one world affects the other, and there is no escape until the two—somehow—come together.
