A woman should be able to ask for what she wants.

It’s 1993, and Air Force Captain Claire Nolan hopes to be one of the first women to fly a combat fighter aircraft. She has no intention of letting Steve Donovan’s captivating brown eyes derail her ambitions, but his team could cost her more than her career. Steve is a member of Charlemagne, the premier freelance specialist team used by western governments for black operations conducted without fingerprints.

The team has come to Okinawa to eliminate a threat to Steve’s young son, and Claire has been appointed as support liaison. She supplies the team with dinner and finds herself part of a plan to elicit the information they need from their target in order to save the child.

During a frenetic and bewildering two-day period, while Charlemagne tries to identify an enemy asset, it becomes increasingly clear to Claire that she has become the bait on a truly deadly hook.

 Will Claire live to fly in combat? Will she get her man? Will she live to do either?

Swallow is the seventh novel in K.A. Bachus’s fast-paced Charlemagne Files series chronicling the lives of a team of deadly Cold War intelligence operatives over a span of three decades.
