PI Lucy Clewes stumbles into a secret war raging in the back streets and shadows of London. To buy time she hires a former soldier, Miles, as personal security. But soon a chilling prediction becomes a visceral reality: they will all be dead before the London Olympic Games opening ceremony, three short weeks away. The discovery of a dead British agent in the wardrobe of an apartment she recently visited leads to a precarious game of cat-and-mouse with the police and a brutal adversary who is always one step ahead. As old friends are lost and new alliances formed, no one can be trusted. The chase gathers pace as money, spies and bullets fly from all sides. Lucy must confront her ghosts or perish and Miles must grasp a chance for revenge to find his own redemption before they both become the latest fatalities of Britain’s most secret war.
