Liana works at the beach and looks like any other college student. She's blond, blue-eyed and very pretty. She works along with Russian students whom the hotel hired for the summer. Liana is very intelligent and speaks several languages including perfect English. All her friends believe Liana is Russian, as she knows their language and customs by heart. However Liana isn't Russian, but a Chechen Muslim. Her goal is simple- she wants herself and her mother to survive. She considers herself a pawn in a cruel and deadly game. The rest of the world knows her as a terrorist.
Liana's looks and demeanor hide the fact that she has spent endless years in combat seeing every horror known to man. She has fought in three separate countries and is now on an assignment in the United States. She will be ordered to befriend a U.S. Senator and join his staff. Her mission will be to place, and detonate, a tiny nuclear bomb in the Capital while the Senate is in session. The ultimate goal of her mission will be to destroy the foundation of the U.S. government in one brutal strike.

The three overcome a host of initial problems and travel deep into the wilderness. They attempt to build a log cabin, and begin to try to live out their lives.
