A treasure trove of Tibetan religious artifacts, known only as the Blue Poppy, has
disappeared. Only one man knows its whereabouts. He is former FBI agent Robert Frazier,
convicted of espionage and now imprisoned at the Colorado high-security federal penitentiary
known as Supermax. His one hope for freedom may lie with Dr. Colleen Gale, the psychiatrist
hired to help him win a new trial on appeal. But Gale’s access to the prisoner also
makes her a target. She finds herself not only drawn to Frazier, but entangled in
the inner circles of the rare art world where greed and obsession reach all the way
to the White House cabinet.
When a prison break designed to abduct Frazier goes awry, Frazier and Gale find themselves
running for their lives — hunted by an international art smuggler and assassin known
as the Ghost, and by federal marshals who have seen six of their own slaughtered.
