She’s not an operative anymore. (She is.)

She goes by her birth name now. (She doesn’t.)

She’s not part of a team anymore. (She always will be.)

Rachelle Winslow was once known as the Database, one of the most powerful special human operatives in the military, able to read and process genetic material on contact. Now she has her own problems and trying to stay out of the business tops the list.

Then a professional informant vanishes from his city apartment, leaving shattered windows, blood on the carpet, and a frantic message that he knows who’s coming after him—a special. It’s just one more case, even if it could end up killing her.
