The President is coming to London, but not to an entirely warm welcome. A fanatical mullah is offering a blessing to anyone who will assassinate the President, and though most London Muslims think the mullah has crossed the line, a few think otherwise.

She has her own contacts and ways of working, but the more she explores the threat, the more she discovers herself in a very dark place indeed.
For the assassination plan is only the beginning.
