Then he’s interrupted by a surprise request from the FBI. Can he help them track down a Chinese spy who’s stealing the lab’s secrets? Becoming engaged in a case of criminal conspiracy is the last thing Brad wants to do—but at the urging of Karen Richmond, his partner and now an FBI agent herself, he agrees.
