Jan Fedarcyk, retired from the FBI as the only woman to lead as Assistant Director in Charge, has written a debut novel that captures the very essence of counterintelligence, double agents and secret investigations between the CIA, FBI, and SVR (formerly the KGB). The combination of these three incredibly powerful and ruthless organizations makes for a most stimulating read. Kay, orphaned at age eight by the murder of her parents, is a sharp FBI investigator, and equally driven when she switches to counterintelligence in the New York City unit. She has only one vulnerability – her intense love for her brother and adoptive aunt and uncle. When she receives the assignment of a lifetime and finds that the impossible choice might be country or family, the story heats up to a fever pitch with an incredible conclusion that might just have you a little breathless.

A gripping debut novel from "the FBI's First Lady" (Vanity Fair)
Jan Fedarcyk, featuring a brilliant young Special Agent named Kay Malloy, whose assignment to the Counterintelligence Program in New York City has devastating consequences--both personal and professional.
Kay Malloy always knew hers would be a life of service. Following the tragic death of her humanitarian parents, Kay and her brother, Christopher, were raised in a world of wealth and culture by their godparents. With ambition and selflessness, Kay joins the FBI to honor her parent's legacy, even while Christopher's life grows increasingly aimless.
Paramilitary and male-dominated, the FBI could be an intimidating employer to anyone less confident, devoted, and insightful than Kay. But after early success in the Violent Crime Program in Baltimore she struggles working counterintelligence in New York. When Kay is assigned to investigate the loss of Russian government double agents, she sees this as her chance to prove herself. As pressure mounts and conflicting leads cloud the investigation, Kay discovers she must make the impossible choice between those she loves and the country she's sworn to protect.
Filled with vivid detail from retired FBI Special Agent Jan Fedarcyk, Fidelity
