The British SIS [SIS: secret intelligence service] selects a man to carry out a sanctioned termination in Tenerife. He leaves on the mission unaware of his true purpose. He's really one part of a secret plot to uncover a spy deep within the London, Whitehall establishment.
The mission rapidly turns deadly.
He soon discovers the world of international espionage has placed him in a desperate situation and presented him with an impossible task. Chinese, Russian, and British agents hunt him while his only help comes from a single London contact but can he trust her?
Will his skills as an elite-soldier be enough to keep him alive long enough to complete his mission and discover the truth or will time run out?
'How does one uncover a spy deep within the British political establishment?'
'That is a question.'
'Yes, isn't it?'
The silent pause drifted.
'Well, do you have the answer?'
'Yes, I do but first, tell me this. What is more important than all other things?'
The silent pause returned.
'No. More important than all other things is "economic" strength.'
