With only seconds to think, Jack grabs Amber’s bag and flees for the fire escape, dodging a hail of bullets in the process. He runs for his life as he is chased across London by the crazed assassins, but who are they and what do they want? With only the contents of Amber’s handbag in his possession, Jack sets about trying to piece together the puzzle, but what he discovers only adds to the mystery. Whilst trying to keep the entire incident secret from his wife, he calls a contact from Amber’s diary, her Moroccan friend Laila, and arranges to meet her. It soon becomes evident that the men hunting Jack are Russian assassins. But what are they really after? And can Jack solve the unfolding mystery before his family find out and he’s implicated in Amber’s murder?
A Russian Conspiracy…?
As things go from bad to worse for Jack and Laila, the only clue they have leads them over to Casablanca, Morocco, but what they discover there only deepens the conspiracy surrounding Amber’s death and her connection with the Russian assassins. With the Russian President flying over to the UK for a prisoner swap, and an international crisis brewing, Jack and Laila return to the UK to try and solve the mystery, but find themselves in a race against time to prevent total global disaster.
