Nick Stones future looks bleak. The only person he's ever loved is dead. The only people who might save him have turned their backs. Until a chance encounter reunites him with a man whose life he saved ten years ago. What seems a simple quest in Baghdad takes Stone into the heart of a chilling conspiracy, from violent Bosnia, through lightening-paced action in Iraq. But too late, he realises he is being used as bait to lure into the open a man he believes can offer some salvation.
