In peaceful Semi Valley, Cathy Davis (Lea Thompson, Back to the Future) lives a normal life. A professional puzzle maker she has a comfortable home, two teenage children, and a devoted husband, Jack (William R. Moses Navy NCIS). But Cathy is full of surprises. Her routine trip to the market for groceries has been impeded by NSA Bureau Chief, Frank Darnell (Joe Penny, Jake and the Fatman), who’s now urging one of his smartest agents to come back to the fold after eighteen years. It’s a national security emergency. The software outlining a top secret communication satellite has been stolen. In the wrong hands anyone could break through the firewalls and penetrate the country’s defense systems. Cathy’s been assured that the assignment is safe—the whereabouts of the missing computer data is merely a case of mental gymnastics, though one only she can unravel. But she’s experienced enough to know that nothing is that simple. Adopting the code name, Jane Doe, wife and mother, Cathy Davis is back in business.
