FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd’s training across Siberia with the USA women’s junior basketball team. She’ll join them on the bench at their next crucial game in the capital of Mongolia.
Undercover and unofficial, Dawna acts like a die-hard hoops fan on summer vacation while she tries to solve a big problem for her friend, the team coach.
Someone is sending anonymous email threats to Alyssa, the team’s powerhouse forward, and Alyssa’s not playing well. The team won’t win in Ulan Bator unless the relentless attacks stop.
Dawna keeps an eye out for Alyssa while she struggles to identify the troublemaker in the jam-packed cars of the Trans-Mongolian Railway. A tougher job when she’s targeted by pair of pickpockets riding the same train.
At the last stop before the Mongolian border, Dawna fights off the two thugs on the platform and she misses the moment when Alyssa is injured during practice nearby.
Was the foiled robbery really a well-timed distraction? Is the plot against Alyssa more complex and dangerous than it first appeared?
Alyssa’s already off her game. Can Dawna crack this case before the player ends up out of the game forever?
