CIA operative Peter Quinn is a self-proclaimed "guy who kills bad guys" within the agency. But despite his job description, he has a conscience. The accidental death of an innocent child at his hands during a mission in Latin America continues to haunt him, and he has every intention of leaving the Agency for good. That is, until Carrie pulls him back in. But can his loyalty (and perhaps unrequited feelings) toward her bring him out of his PTSD funk and return him to the world-class agent he was, or will they drive him further to despair and self-destruction?
