Steamy Romance and Spine-Tingling Action Britt Jaeger, a thirty-something, self-described “little Midwestern farm girl,” flees an abusive marriage, only to face a terrifying assault on her bus ride to New York.
Bruised, emotionally and physically, Britt arrives with one suitcase and money for two months in a roach motel apartment. She lands an entry-level Wall Street job under a lecherous manager whose eyes never rise above her cleavage. Working late one night, she is befriended by CEO Mackenzie Collingwood and introduced to “all the right people,” including the firm’s most important client, Colonel Rebekah Chayet, a former Mossad assassin.
All the right people become all the wrong people as the three women are caught in a cauldron of lies, violence, intrigue and sex when Britt is mistaken for the colonel and kidnapped in an Iranian conspiracy that could change the world’s balance of power.
The action and conflict in this romantic, espionage thriller are unnervingly interconnected as the story moves from New York to London, Tel Aviv, Tehran and Athens, even a private Caribbean island owned by seven of the richest women in the world.
Framed against real world geopolitical threats—including Al Quds commandoes, the first Iranian warships to transit the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean; the Stuxnet computer virus that destroyed thousands of Iran’s uranium centrifuges and the assassination of Iranian physicists—Jay Hawk is an extensively researched story of agonizing personal choices, individual responsibility and unintended consequences.
