From poor immigrant to wealthy citizen in leafy, Georgian, Cheltenham. Loving father, successful businessman, magistrate, Tariq Hashmi has it all.... But the skeleton in his cupboard wants out. A clandestine message reminds him how, long ago, he signed a binding pact with Gaddafi's deadly intelligence networks. Now he is forced to turn his hand against a Britain he has come to love. Before he has time to react, unseen hands snatch his most precious possession. He senses a terrible blow is about to be struck and many will die. But he doesn't know where or when the killers will strike. Fearful of the authorities and desperate to get ahead of his adversaries, Hash turns to the only people he can trust, his Muslim friends and a convicted IRA killer.
