Is mild-mannered Iranian pornographer Shaheen Soroush really the deadly killer everyone thinks he is? And as for his fortune – where is it and can it be accessed?
How come seemingly innocent former SAS officer Harry Linley is suddenly so wealthy?
Alluring Russian Oleana definitely knows more that she lets on – but will that get her into trouble? Almost certainly.
Can the clever Dubai detective Omar Shamoon find out once and for all what's really happening on his patch?
And purring contentedly in the middle of all this is Bunny, a Persian cat presumed dead but very much alive.
Russian mobsters, ex-special forces operatives, Iranian secret agents, a British computer hacker, and a bumbling MI6 analyst with a knack for accidentally predicting the next international crisis, these are all the ingredients for a masterful and humorous thriller that races between the Gulf States, Singapore, Moscow, Iran, Bermuda and London…ending with a neat twist ready for the next book in the Harry Linley series.
