Where do you find a man to send beyond the reach of international law? To fight state tyranny, terrorism and traffickers in the world's deadliest narcotics?

Former SAS man - infiltrator, investigator and sometime executioner - Kurt Mallory is the natural choice to head up a covert search-and-destroy operation. One that will force him to face the demons of his past. And take him to the depths of inhumanity on the most unnerving mission of his life.
