Atticus Kodiak knows where people go to hide. Thats why he and Alena Cizkova have come to a secluded Georgian town in the former U.S.S.R. What he doesnt know is what his friend and neighbor Bakhar Lagidze was hiding from. Bakhar and his entire family have been viciously murderedall except for Lagidzes fourteen-year-old daughter, whose nightmare is just beginning. To rescue her, Atticus must enter a lethal web that stretches from Russia to Istanbul, from Dubai to Las Vegas, and into the very heart of evil. But what troubles Atticus the most is that Alena, once one of the worlds most fearless assassins, is clearly terrified of what Atticus will uncoverand what hell become when he does.
