Summary


Every family has its secrets--some are worth killing for.

As the head of Swedish Intelligence in Brussels, Bente Jensen has many enemies, even among those who ought to be her allies--such as Jonathan Green of MI6. In a city heaving with competing espionage agencies, he is the person she fears and distrusts most. She has good reason. They share a past.

Green has been part of an MI6 conspiracy to hold, interrogate, torture, and kill its political prisoners in a safe house in Syria. This explosive information has been leaked to Bente by a conscience-stricken British operative. When it is clear she can expose this operation, MI6 uses its full arsenal of dirty tricks to shame her, disgrace her, destroy her relationships, and remove her from active service.

But Green's private life has more in common with Bente's than he cares to admit. He is far from fireproof himself. Both spies will find themselves targets of the UK establishment's precisely calculated revenge.

Like its highly acclaimed predecessor Into A Raging Blaze, Andreas Norman's new novel is a morally and politically complex international thriller. Its nail-biting plot and sympathetic characters show the tragic human consequences of private and public treachery.
