Michael Vaux, former journalist and occasional secret agent for Britain’s MI6 must overcome betrayal and double-dealing within the spy networks of major Mideast players such as the UK, Israel and the major Arab nations in this espionage thriller. Suspected of being a long-term double agent for a Mideast nation, Michael needs to uncover the real mole in order to clear his name and save his life


“No spy novelist has created or imagined a character like Michael Vaux. No spy novelist has ever written about Department B3,” Croft states. “This is Vaux’s fifth assignment and readers who have followed the Vaux series will want to know whether MI6’s suspicions about Vaux's loyalty to queen and country are justified.”
