In international bestselling author Campbell Armstrong’s thrilling, sophisticated tale of espionage, an assassin’s vengeance triggers the exposure of a lethal conspiracy at the heart of the US government
The director of the CIA lies unconscious and close to death in a private clinic, and his likely successor waits on his Pennsylvania estate while the power brokers in Washington, DC, do their deals. In the meantime, a man in Dallas is murdered. And on the other side of the globe, in Manila, a nondescript American is killed in his lover’s back-alley apartment.
Hard-drinking Scotsman Charlie Galloway, who has been suspended from his job in the LAPD, unofficially looks into the murder of a Filipino woman. Step by step, his investigation leads him to the nation’s capital, where a shocking conspiracy reaches deep into the heart of government.
