Deena King is a barrister. A tough, professional woman who has made a successful career putting criminals behind bars. Al Virtue is a professional villain, the brains behind some of the most daring heists the capital has seen. Only once has he been called to pay for his crimes, and Deena King was the prosecuting QC.

But now they must form an unlikely alliance, for Deena’s son and Al’s daughter have vanished from college. As the trail leads from the London underworld to the headquarters of a Colombian drug cartel, it soon becomes apparent that the forces of law and order are following an agenda in which the safe return of the young students is not a priority – and Al and Deena are unwitting pawns in a deadly game.
