British consul general to Hong Kong, Finley Hughes, is at a crossroads. The streets of Hong Kong are awash in protest and Finley is about to play a diplomatic trump card against Beijing that will force the Chinese leadership to back off the city state’s internal politics. Meanwhile, Finley’s journalist brother, Jack, a covert SIS informant, and their godfather, Theo, the head of MI6, have been made aware of a plot against Finley’s life. When Jack dies suddenly on assignment in Mexico, Finley is forced to leave Hong Kong to grieve with his estranged sister in the south of France, where Jack kept a small villa. Danger follows. While they reconnect over their brother’s passing, Theo scrambles to locate Finley’s soon-to-be assassin. Time is ticking and it becomes readily apparent that everyone is playing an angle, not everyone is who they say they are, and not everything is as it seems.
