A terrorist leader is assassinated in the desert outside Damascus. These seemingly unrelated events are connected by one man. To the Police in England he is a suspect in the murder of his son- to shadowy figures from the war torn Middle East he is a traitor who must be silenced. What begins as a routine police enquiry culminates in a national crisis and one detective faces the impossible . He must betray everything he has ever believed in and risk all in one spin of the wheel to prevent an atrocity beyond imagination. The largest manhunt in history is launched in a city of ten million- the price of failure is a catastrophe the repercussions of which would last generations. The story deals with the darkest side of humanity and examines the duplicity and motivation of Islamic terrorism in the 21st century against the background of an increasingly morally bankrupt and secular western society- ancient themes and ancient hatreds both of which continue to have as much relevance as ever.
