It is six months since Jonathan Ransom foiled the attack on an Israeli jet that threatened to plunge the world into war.
He has spent the last six months in hiding in South East Asia avoiding having to confront his wife's double life and the lie that was their eight-year marriage.
Now Emma has initiated a reconciliation which Ransom reluctantly goes along with.
They meet in London and vow to start over with no more secrets between them.
But only minutes after they reunite, they bear witness to a terrible act of violence.
A band of gunmen ambush a convoy of limousines carrying the U.S.
Secretary of State and the Saudi Arabian Oil Minister to a secret meeting.
Caught in the midst of the attack, Jonathan and Emma take matters into their own hands.
When the violence subsides, the Saudi Minister has been killed, all of the terrorists are dead, and Emma is missing.
Despite their actions, Jonathan and Emma fall under suspicion.
Pursued by MI5, Jonathan knows that his only path to freedom lies in tracking down his wife.
To do so, he must learn once and for all the truth behind her identity, and whether she has renounced her ways as a spy. Or if he, Jonathan Ransom, is the ultimate pawn in a game far beyond his imagining.

Review by Ameise1
This was a gorgeous reading. I liked this espionage story very much. All major countries as US, Russia and England are involved, but nobody would grant someone else the success. Jonathan's wife is an agent but it let me guessing until the last page for whom she is working. Firstly, Jonathan couldn't believe what his 'wife' is up to, therefore he isn't trying to help her than to stop her. It was a breathtaking reading until the very last page.
