April Gentry is a woman on a mission. She's a world-renowned ethnobotanist, and she's made it her calling to fulfill her late father's legacy by bringing a life-altering medication from the Amazon to the general public.

And though he is the last person on earth she wants to trust, when Gentry' is wrongly accused of hacking into a CIA satellite, Wolfe is the only person who's willing to fight to clear her name. There's just one catch: he'll have to defy the agency that gave him a second chance to do it.
