"He who controls the weather, will control the world. He who controls time, will never be around." --Thomas Frey
FBI Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are the government's Covert Eyes--leading a top-notch handpicked team of agents to tackle crimes and criminals both international and deadly. But their first case threatens their fledgling team when the Fox calls from Venice asking for help.
Kitsune has stolen an incredible artifact from the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul, and now the client wants her dead. She has a warning for Nick and Mike: she's overheard talk that a devastating Gobi desert sandstorm that's killed thousands in Beijing isn't a natural phenomenon, rather is produced by man. The Covert Eyes team heads to Venice, Italy, to find out the truth.
From New York to Venice and from Rome to the Bermuda Triangle, Nicholas and Mike and their team are in a race against time, and nature herself, to stop an obsessed family from devastating Washington, DC.

In bestseller Coulter and Ellisons adventure-filled fourth thriller in the Brit in the FBI series (after 2015s The End Game), Nicholas Drummond and his partner-lover, Michaela Mike Caine, travel to Venice, Italy, to meet master thief Kitsune, who needs the skills of their Covert Eyes team. Kitsune has gotten on the bad side of evil twins Cassandra and Ajax Koath, former clients of hers who are obsessed with finding the Ark of the Covenant and its promise of power. Having learned to harness weather from their genius grandfather, Jason Koath (who built on an idea of Da Vincis developed by Nikola Tesla and his own grandfather), the twins have caused a sandstorm from the Gobi Desert to bury Beijing. From the Koath twins mountain fortress in Italy to Jasons hidden island in the Bermuda Triangle, Kitsune and the Covert Eyes team engage in an epic series of battles with the twins and their minions. Fans of popular culture will appreciate the references to such icons as the Star Trek Romulans, Harry Potter, and Sherlock Holmes. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Mar.)
