It should have been simple, this finding the next-of-kin. But for Officer Cody Byrne, the explosion that injures the Shakespeare professor is more than suspicious. So begins the unraveling of a man's life, a man's secrets, his loves and birthright, as Cody follows his trail to Washington, DC, then London, trying to glean something of his shadowed past from the Renaissance documents he left behind.

It begins in Montana, but soon takes her on a global journey, as well as a psychic one, after an Iraq tour as an Army Reservist leaves her shaken. Eager that no one finds out about her PTSD, she toughs it out, even while grieving for her brother lost in Afghanistan. A challenge coin he left behind is another mystery, the blank side and the side that says: "PLAN X: Always with you, Wherever you go."

Cody's journey takes her back to the family she hardly knows, and the surprising revelations of a professor's past.

A different kind of thriller

This is a fun, quick listen with an original take on the typical thriller. Cody Byrnes is suffering from PTSD after a tour in Iraq, and now works as a cop in Montana. A deadly explosion in a university lab opens up an intricate mystery involving spies, lost works of William Shakespeare, and the sordid history of the Royal Family, along with Cody's own mysterious family history, and the settings vary between Montana, London, and Buckingham Palace.

Cody is a flawed protagonist, as are her family and friends. They are all interesting and still have secrets that could be uncovered in future books which I would definitely read.
