Thomas Dylan is an unlikely spy.
Rejected by MI6 he joins the Ministry of Defence where his first mission is a total failure. Unexpectedly he is then sent to Rio de Janeiro to recover a submarine interrogator stolen from the US Navy.
In Brazil he discovers that those supposedly on his side, MI6 and the CIA, have their own priorities and his life is not one of them.
A murderous game which began with the death of a British spy in Argentina is being 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 has to trust somebody. But who?
He knows for sure that the woman he wants to trust has been lying to him from the very beginning. But why?
This is a fast-paced thriller in the vein of John le Carré and Eric Ambler.
