Former military spy Judd Ryder is walking to his D.C. home when he spots a man coming out of his row house who looks like Ryder and is wearing his clothes. As Ryder slows to follow, the imposter is killed in a hit-and-run that's no accident. Was the man the intended victim, or was it Ryder himself? Soon Ryder learns that the key to the mysterious events of the past and to his double's murder is an infamous Cold War assassin, the Carnivore. Two of the last people to see the Carnivore were Ryder and CIA trainee Eva Blake, and someone is using them to lure him out. From Washington D.C. to Marrakech and Baghdad, the assassins wage a final battle -- this time against one another -- fighting for their reputations and Saddam Hussein's long-missing billion-dollar fortune. In the end, only one can be left standing. Caught in the crossfire, Judd and Eva go on the run while desperately unraveling the tangled past and battling not only for their lives, but for their destinies"--

In 2003, in the chaos surrounding the Iraq War and the fall of Baghdad, a team of top freelance assassins infiltrates and then escapes the country with a near priceless treasure. Since then, there's been barely a whisper of a rumor of those men, the treasure, and what it actually means. A decade later, Judd Ryder returns to the DC area from a covert operation in Iraq to see his doppelganger across the street, a man who is wearing his clothes, living in his house, and pretending to be him. Just as he's about to confront him, Ryder watches as his double is killed in an all-too-convenient car accident. Not only was someone pretending to be him, someone else wanted to kill him. As he soon learns, the key to all of this is a legendary Cold War freelance assassin known as the Carnivore. Ryder and his colleague Eva Blake were the last two people known to have had contact with him. Now someone is trying to use them to lure the Carnivore out of retirement or hiding, wherever he might be. At stake appears to be a treasure of unimaginable value. And the players are the most dangerous freelancers on the world stage. Now Ryder and Blake must use every resource at their disposal, to outmaneuver the forces allied against them and stay alive, and, if possible, uncover the truth that lurks in the shadows of this deadly game of assassins
