Lynn heads up the FBI agency office in Jerusalem—no easy task given the ongoing political and cultural unrest in the region. On top of that, there’s the delicate balance she must strike with the local authorities and her superiors, including Ambassador Ruth Ridell. Lynn is also Peter’s supervisor. The irony is that she learned everything she knows from when she trained under him. As Peter's closest and only true friend, she understands him better than anyone else. She got him the assignment in Jerusalem when he asked her help in getting him out of Washington. Lynn still believes in him, even if he did make some big mistakes and now her reputation depends on proving that she made the right call.
