Thomas Dylan is an unlikely spy. Rejected by MI6 he joins the Defence Intelligence Staff but his initial missions are total failures. Despite that when a submarine interrogator is stolen from the US Navy Dylan is sent to Rio de Janeiro to buy it back.
A murderous game which began with the death of a British spy in Argentina is about to be played out in a city of sun, sea and secret police.
When he comes face-to-face with the brutal realities of Brazil’s military dictatorship Dylan knows he has to trust somebody. But who? Those supposedly on his side, MI6 and the CIA, have their own priorities and Dylan’s life is definitely not one of them.
The one thing he can be sure of is that the woman he wants to trust has been lying to him from the very beginning.
