When a Russian oligarch is killed off the Isle of Capri, Russian intelligence sources speculate that a legendary Israeli assassin, long thought dead, might be responsible. But David Slaton - the assassin in question - is innocent, and the only way to clear his name is to travel to Capri and find out who's truly responsible.
While he searches, a web of disparate events unfolds across the world. Three ships, owned by the group of Russians, deliver a mysterious cargo to the shores of the Arabian Peninsula. In Morocco, a Russian aerospace company begins flight testing an innovative new drone. From Switzerland to the Red Sea, Slaton uncovers a conspiracy of monumental scope. This plot will change the world strategic order - and goes straight to the top of the Russian government.
