1966. Washington, D.C. To survive in this town, sometimes a good girl has to be bad. Really bad.
Longing to transcend her Midwest roots and strict religious upbringing, Judah Lundquist spends her days obediently typing insurance policies for Tom Lawrence of Standard Life Insurance. But Washington is not Peoria, and she finds herself caught up in a nightmare that threatens to subvert all the values she's tried to uphold while exposing secrets from her past. A shameful one-night stand with neighbor Ralph Hicks lands Judah in a trap of her own doing. To protect what is left of her tattered reputation, Judah must become a seductress and a thief, betraying the only man who can possibly save her--a man with secrets that have nothing to do with crime and everything to do with the Cold War.
