After discovering her whole life is a lie, set up by the American Government, Scarlett skips out on the secret Black Op's organisation, Thanatos, to have a chance of life without killing. 

But she is not without enemies. 

And Scarlett is soon thrown into a Russian underground prison, completely off the grid, when she is captured by her old flame and international arms dealer; Aleksandr Udonovsky. 

Scarlett is there for two years, induring unbearable torture, when she is asked for help by the man who put her in there; Alek.

She will have to save his brother who, unaware of Alek’s criminal past, is being held inside Thanatos, or be killed. 

Now, Scarlett will have to break into the one place she had vowed never to return to, in order to save her lover’s brother or risk her own daughter paying the price. 

What’s a secret spy to do?

Nice start!  I like how you how her regret at betraying him yet her sense of duty as well.
High-gloss formalism and grey on grey morality. I like it already :)

About the whole book- why are Americans and Brits so harsh on Russians?

WOW THIS IS REALLY GOOD! I feel bad for Scarlett, Alek is either genuinely nice as well as a criminal, or a very good actor.
