Baker & Taylor
SIS agent Peter Ashton faces his most dangerous case involving numerous threats to members of the agency, a senior member's blackmailing by an Islamic terrorist group, and the appearance of illicit chemical agents.

McMillan Palgrave
SIS agent Peter Ashton, currently the department head for the Eastern European desk, finds himself facing the touchiest - and most dangerous situation of his career as the SIS itself comes under siege from persons or groups unknown. Someone who is clearly ferreting out some of the most closely held secrets of the intelligence agency and using them to make some not-so-veiled threats.

At the same time, Jill Sheridan, one of the most senior SIS people, is off in Florida, trying to stay well out of the way while her lover's wife involves her in a very nasty, very public divorce. While there, however, she is compromised and finds herself being blackmailed by an Islamic terrorist group.

When a large quantity of an illicit chemical agent turns up in rather unlikely place, it falls to Ashton to evaluate these three very disparate turns of event. Somehow, these seemingly unrelated but troubling events are all part of the same careful, complex and very deadly plot - one that threatens the highest reaches of England's security service. With few leads and very little time, Peter Ashton must uncover and neutralize his most deadly enemy to date.
