Three-year-old Sarah Peterson was the only witness to the brutal murder of her father, a CIA agent who was shot at point-blank range in a deserted schoolyard near his Virginia home. Thirty-five years later, that little girl has become a high-level agent for the Secret Service -- so tough and accomplished that she is tapped by the President for the plum job of head of security for Jack Montgomery, the Secretary of State.

When Sarah tapes the proceedings of a clandestine meeting involving her new boss and two businessmen with extensive -- and questionable -- ties to the Middle East, she accidentally uncovers their plot to kidnap the daughter of one of the world's wealthiest men. But why? The answer involves a plan to assassinate a Middle East despot, rogue agents, a $50 million ransom, and wrongdoing at the highest levels of government. It may also hold the key to the truth behind the death of Sarah's father.

Reluctantly, Sarah joins forces with the father of the kidnapped woman and finds herself in a dangerous game of high-stakes, high-tech espionage, and revenge where everyone is suspect and siding with the wrong player could prove fatal. "Rock, Paper, Scissors" will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last heart-pounding page.
