Fugitive Serbian war criminals have abducted the world-famous daughter of the ICTY Presiding Judge. The very fabric of international justice is set to unravel. There's only one thing for Alex Morgan to do - hunt the bastards down.
His orders are simple: 'The safety catch is off. Return that girl to her family and drag those bastards back to justice. Dead or alive. It makes no difference to me.' Alex Morgan – policeman, soldier and spy for INTREPID, the black ops division of INTERPOL – is on the hunt for Serbian war criminals. But these guys were never going to let it be that simple. An assassination attempt is made on the presiding judge of the international tribunal. Days later, the judge's daughter, the famous and beautiful classical pianist Charlotte Rose, vanishes in mysterious circumstances. The girl is not just a pretty face and the daughter of a judge, however. She's also the goddaughter of INTREPID's veteran commander, General Davenport. It's up to Morgan and the INTREPID team to track the kidnappers and the missing woman before the very fabric of international justice is picked apart at its fraying edges. Part James Bond and part Jason Bourne, this time Alex Morgan must walk the line between doing the right thing and getting the job done.
