A British intelligence operation to recover an asset from Moscow goes catastrophically wrong, compromised by a rogue element at the highest level of US government. So Margo Lane, one of MI6’s top agents, is ordered to deliver a message the White House won’t forget.
Satisfied at the chance for retribution, Margo embarks on a mission that will take her from the violent heart of Russia to the edge of the civil war in Syria – until she is led to a terrifying personal decision she hoped she would never have to make. And Margo’s world is one where your conscience can get you killed.
