Nineteen-year-old Alix Nico, a self-described million-dollar murder machine, is a rising star in ExOps, a covert-action agency that aggressively shields the United States from its three great enemies: the Soviet Union, Greater Germany, and the Nationalist Republic of China. Rather than risk another all-out war, the four superpowers have poured their resources into creating superspies known as Levels.
Alix is one of the hottest young American Levels. That's no surprise: Her dad was America's top Level before he was captured and killed eight years ago. But when an impulsive decision explodes literally in her face, Alix uncovers a conspiracy that pushes her to her limits and could upset the global balance of power forever.
