FBI agent and playboy Tristan Bleu is in deep. Undercover for the last 18 months, his assignment has been handed down personally from the Director of National Intelligence. Meeting with his contacts in the darkness of a global and elite, members-only sex club, Tristan spends his time not chasing women, but the origins of a dangerous Shadow Broker - a double agent selling US weapon security codes to Russian intelligence.
When Champagne magnate Renè Lebleu reaches out to him, Tristan puts his duties on hold for two days, flying to his birthplace in France to meet a man he’s never seen - a father he’s never known. Upon arrival Tristan is filled with suspicion, but his animosity, forged by years of abandonment and lies, is quickly put on notice by his father’s trusted confidant and bold personal assistant, Henriette - Henry - Tribolet. Meeting his match in the gorgeous and intelligent Henry, Tristan finds it hard to keep up his typical and indifferent air. But Henry Tribolet sees straight through Tristan’s steely indifference to the heart of the real man - a man with an enormous capacity to forgive. A would-be Champagne heir discovering true love for the first time.
Caught in a web of lies, Tristan must defend his innocence from a malicious ploy crafted by enemies and insiders while chasing the threats of foreign adversaries across the globe.
When Tristan discovers the true nature of the family he never knew, he’ll fall deeper into the perilous world of international espionage than ever before - taking Henry with him.
What begins with Champagne and trust will end in deceit and murder.

Narration irritating to the extreme
I was happy to find such a series, and I didn't go in order, this was the first book I listened to.
Yet, after the performance in this one, I am not sure I'm going to continue. I think it was extremely annoying that the narrators used a French accent all the way for most of the characters. Which meant that most of the book was narrated like this as well.
The book coould have used a little more of the mistery and less of the family saga. Otherwise the story was okay, although the BIG SECRET could have come out much earlier, and the book wrapped up sooner. It would have made for a better story, but I guess the writer was paid by the page.
