Anthony The assassin had had Khalifa under surveillance long enough to know who the sender was and what he was referring to. It was a parallel and potentially more damaging project, which up until this point had appeared stalled. Obviously, things had changed -- and not for the better. The assassin shut down the laptop and spent the next several hours pondering the implication of what he had learned. He then started formulating a plan. When all of the angles had been considered and tested in his mind, he reactivated the computer.
Attaching the relevant e-mails between Khalifa and Anthony Nichols, he composed his report and delivered his assessment to his superiors. Their response came back twenty minutes later, hidden in the draft folder of the e-mail account they shared. The assassin had been cleared for the Paris operation. At the end of the message, his superiors instructed that the necessary funds would be transferred to Paris and all necessary arrangements would be made.
They then congratulated him on his success in Rome. The assassin deleted the message from the draft folder and logged off. After reciting his prayers, he disconnected his phone and hung the Do Not Disturb sign on his door. He would be leaving early in the morning and needed to rest. The next several days were going to be very busy.
His superiors were in agreement that the Prophet Mohammed's lost revelation needed to stay lost -- forever. Her blond hair had grown back and came to just below her ears. There it was -- the topic he'd been trying to avoid since killing the man who had shot her nine months ago.
Harvath nodded. I'm fine. Not one hundred percent, but as close as I'm probably going to get. Prior to being targeted by an assassin bent on revenge against Harvath, Tracy had been a Naval Explosive Ordinance Disposal technician who had lost one of her luminescent, pale blue eyes when an IED she was attempting to defuse detonated prematurely.
Though her face had undergone significant scarring, the plastic surgeons had done a remarkable job of minimizing the visible damage. Hastings had always been in great shape, but after the accident she had thrown herself into her fitness routine. She had the most perfectly sculpted body of any woman Harvath had ever known. Self-conscious about her disfigurement and the pale blue eye given to her by her surgeons as a replacement, Tracy had been fond of joking that she had both a body to die for and the face to protect it. It was a joke that Harvath had worked hard to wean from her repertoire.
She was the most beautiful woman he had ever met, and slowly his hard work had paid off. The closer they grew and the safer Tracy felt with him, the less her self-deprecating humor seemed necessary. The same could be said for Harvath. Ten years Tracy's senior, he had used his sarcasm largely to keep the world at bay. Now, he used it to make her laugh. With his handsome, rugged face, sandy brown hair, bright blue eyes, and muscular five-foot-ten frame, they made a striking couple. And that's okay.

She knew he'd never be happy living an ordinary life. So much of who he was and how he saw himself came from what he did. He needed to get back to it, even if that meant her nudging him toward it. Harvath slid his hand out from under hers. He couldn't put what had happened behind him. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn't shake the picture of finding Tracy in a pool of blood with a bullet in the back of her head, or the memory of the president who had stood in his way while the person responsible continued to target those closest to Harvath.
We need to get back to the real world, and you need to think about going back to work. I'm done," he said. A Navy SEAL who had joined the president's Secret Service detail in an effort to help improve the White House's ability to stave off and respond to terrorist attacks, Harvath had grown to become the president's number one covert counterterrorism operative and was exceptional at what he did.
So exceptional, in fact, that the president had created a top-secret antiterrorism effort known as the Apex Project specifically for him. Its goal was to level the playing field with international terrorists who sought to strike Americans and American interests at home and abroad. That goal was achieved through one simple mandate -- as long as the terrorists refused to play by any rules, Harvath wouldn't be expected to either.
The OIIA's overt mission was to assist foreign police, military, and intelligence agencies in helping to prevent terrorist attacks. But that part of Harvath's life was over. It had taken him years to realize that his counterterrorism career was incompatible with what he really wanted -- a family and someone to come home to; someone to share his life with. Starting relationships had never been his problem. It was keeping them going that he never could get right.
Tracy Hastings was the best thing to ever happen to him and he had no intention of letting her go. For the first time in he couldn't remember how long, Scot Harvath was truly happy. There'll be Christmas and then the inauguration in January. Unless the constitution has been rewritten and Rutledge is elected to a third term, you'll be dealing with a completely new president.
Popping the lock on a faded blue Peugeot, the man climbed in, shut the door and disappeared beneath the window line. He had also never seen such a smartly dressed criminal before. As much as he was trying to escape his old life, his instincts were still very much attuned to the world around him. Just because a sheepdog was tired of fighting off wolves, it didn't mean that wolves were tired of preying on sheep.
Instead of driving away, though, the man just sat there. Harvath was about to answer when he saw a silver Mercedes sedan approach. The thief must have seen it too because he immediately applied his blinker and pulled away from the curb, leaving the parking space to the Mercedes. Harvath had spent enough time in cities like New York to know the lengths people would go to for a parking space, but stealing a car?
This was ridiculous. As the Peugeot slipped away, the Mercedes took its place. No sooner was it parked than another well-dressed Arab opened the door, looked both ways up and down the street, climbed out and walked away.
