Geoffrey Summers, a soldier of fortune, has a choice. Work for Al Qaeda or have his real identity revealed. He is forced to accept an assignment to deliver a weapons package to terrorists in Birmingham and decides to use a canal freight narrow boat to transport it from London.
Josh Wilson, the canal narrow boat owner, unaware of the true nature of his cargo takes as a passenger, Samantha Ryder, a dying woman with a past.
The journey by canal from London to Birmingham and beyond is one of love and happiness, deceit and despair, discovery and death.
It seems that only Josh and Samantha can stop a major terrorist attack rivalling that of 9.11 or worse.
