Mirabel Campbell is a brilliant but bored scientist and amateur astronomer who wants to trade in her microscope and telescope for a career with a little more excitement. She abruptly gets her wish - her life is transformed into nothing less than high adventure when she spots what she thinks might be a new comet in the California desert night sky. What she doesn't know could kill her because the flash of light is really a top-secret nanosatellite, and its discovery combined with her scientific specialty makes her the target of a mysterious psychopath who sends an assassin to silence her. Instead, her friends begin to die around her. As if all that wasn't enough, Sully, her CIA ex-husband, whom she still loves, gets involved. Now, she also has to deal with the government and some long-buried emotions. Mirabel must learn how to stay alive in a covert world of political intrigue where the unexpected is the norm, and she's not the kind of woman who'll wait for her ex-husband or anyone else to make her decisions. She made a promise to find out what's so special about that tiny point of light in the sky, and she intends to keep that promise. Sensuality Level: Behind Closed Doors
