It began in the quiet smugness of an elegant club in St. James, and ended in a nightmare of brutality and deception.
Mike Locken, a former specialist in security and transport, takes on a job to shepherd an exiled African politician in a risky transit across London, the first step in a triumphant return to his homeland. But out there somewhere waits an elite team of international assassins contracted to take him down -- one of whom not so long ago put three bullets into Locken that should have left him a corpse, but didn't... one bad guy's big mistake.
So Mike Locken -- unofficial now, an expendable gun-for-hire, reenters the war zone driven by his own demons. Ostensibly to foil a political assassination but willing to use the African as bait if it gets him a shot at the man who put Locken out of business forever, or so it seemed to everyone but Locken. Following a path from stakeout to shootout, from deception at a London airport to betrayal in a remote Welsh village, returning finally to London where it began -- and a savage finish. "Rostand knows how to let action like this explode all over the place," says Bestsellers. A Delacorte Suspense Novel of the Year. Filmed by Sam Peckinpah/United Artists.
