The second story in the trilogy sees Scott back in London after having been deported from Russia for alleged anti-Russian activities. His world is suddenly and unexpectedly shattered when the British police publicly arrest him on suspicion of laundering 100 million dollars for Chechen mobsters and terrorists.

He becomes a pawn in a power play being fought out between the British police, MI6 and opaque organs of the EU. Fuelling Scott’s trepidation is his suspicion that Ekaterina’s oligarch husband is waiting to pounce; but as friend or foe?

As Scott fights to clear his name, he is forced ineluctably down the helter-skelter of political intrigue into the cesspool of multi-state corruption where he must choose between his unswerving belief in the supremacy of the rule of law (“without it we have anarchy”) and pragmatism.
