AbstractHistoryArchive Description

John Anselm is a former Beirut hostage, a war correspondent who went to one war too many. Then into his life comes Con Niemand, ex-mercenary and professional survivor. Against his will, Anselm is plunged into a world of violence, betrayal and death. He must break out of his anaesthetised life and pit himself against forces he does not understand, forces determined to rebury a secret that can destroy reputations and lives across the globe.
