When journalist Laura Kennedy hears of a deathbed confession her investigative instincts kick into action. Which is bad news for Daniel Trenet, former mercenary, and now a successful industrialist. But Trenet hasn’t built up a profitable business empire in international arms-dealing only to allow it to be threatened – and with it his luxurious lifestyle.
When Steve Johnson – millionaire, former kidnap victim, and one of the new American owners of The Sunday Clarion – decides to accompany Laura on her mission, neither of them realise the dangers they’ll face when Trent unleashes the ruthless Ricardo Perez onto their trail.
As they criss-cross Europe putting together the pieces of the puzzle, the race to stop them from finding the truth grows more frantic, with Laura and Steve finding themselves battling not just for an explosive story, but for their very lives.
