After his wife walked out on him, brilliant spymaster and interrogator Josh Ruskin left the CIA, crawled into a bottle, and stayed there... until tonight. Now the former subordinate who took his place has dragged him back into the shadow world of global intelligence that Josh swore he had left behind forever. It seems one of the Agency's best operatives has sold out one of it's darkest secrets, and only Josh can get the traitor to confess before time runs out. There's only one problem... he used to be married to her.
Asymmetric is a lean, suspenseful thriller that explores marriage and espionage in tandem, delving into the ways secrets can erode both love and nations... and how redemptive honor can be found in the strangest places.
