In the thick of a West End riot, three hooded men attack respected BBC reporter Steve Ross – and kill his cameraman friend, stealing every scrap of his equipment. The police insist the murderer was a rioter intent on removing video evidence. Steve’s instincts tell him otherwise. But who could want a clumsy, outdated TV camera badly enough to kill?
Amid the discreet respectability and laundered money of the Swiss cantons sits a profiteer of apartheid who knows the answer. His unwilling detainee is a Colombian explosives expert whose beauty is as incendiary as her deadly services. And Steve’s determination to discover the truth draws him into a nexus of international terrorism that his investigative powers could barely have predicted.
