When Swedish security officer Ernst Grip is sent on a special mission to a United States military base in the Indian Ocean, he is supposedly there to determine if a terrorist held by the Americans is a Swedish citizen.

Working with FBI agent Shauna Friedman, Grip soon becomes embroiled in the investigation of an international plot that involves a ruthless arms dealer, a Czech contract killer, a mysterious nurse from Kansas, a rather na´ve Pakistani and, yes, a recalcitrant Swede.

In a harrowing action adventure filled with deception and betrayal, the two key protagonists, Grip and Friedman, harbor their own secrets. Neither of these characters is whom he or she appears to be, which makes for an exciting if not sometimes exasperating read.
