Celia Rewall, a British diplomat, vanishes into thin air. Her disappearance coincides with the compromised extraction of a Syrian defector, leaving the defector dead and one of the extraction team abducted. Is it feasible the events are connected? One man believes so - Nick Torr, Director of MI6's Covert Directorate CO8.
With time running out to recover the hostages alive, Torr intensifies his ferocious hunt during a bloody bombing campaign, taking him from Europe to the cruel, explosive heart of a country fighting for its very survival - Syria; the Point of No Return.
