The lock is the key. Escaping your past isn't always easy. Aeron Lorelei gets a vision that CIG General Ursula Frei has been captured and is seriously injured. With Commander Renee Black, Aeron starts searching with the only information she has: the memories of Frei's past triggered when Aeron touches a certain padlock that shows the depth of the scars hidden inside Frei. Aeron and Renee retrace Frei's footsteps on a journey that takes them through the hardship and heroism of Frei's old life. Dodging the Internal Affairs Team's attempts to solve irregularities in their mission and with the foes from Frei's former life closing in on them, Aeron and Renee need all their skills, faith, and cunning to find her as quickly as they can. As the flashbacks get more vivid and drain Aeron's still dimmed burdens and strength, this mission could end up costing CIG the lives of their two top agents. --Provided by publisher.
