Publication: Hodder & Stoughton, 2008, London

First edition. Signed by the author on the title page. As new, unread copy, in dust jacket. A half-starved young Russian man is smuggled into Hamburg in the dead of night. He has an unbelievable amount of cash hidden in a purse around his neck. He's a devout Muslim. Or is he? He says his name is Issa. Annabel, an idealistic young German civil rights lawyer, is determined to save Issa from deportation. Soon her client's survival becomes more important to her than her own career. In pursuit of Issa's mysterious past, she confronts the incongruous Tommy Brue, the sixty-year-old heir of Brue Freres, a failing British bank based in Hamburg. A triangle of impossible loves is born. Meanwhile, scenting a sure kill in the so-called War on Terror, the rival spies of three nations converge upon the innocents.
