It is 1997, eight months since Claymore Straker fled South Africa after his explosive testimony to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In Paris, Rania LaTour, journalist, comes home to find that her son and her husband, a celebrated human rights lawyer, have disappeared. On an isolated island off the coast of East Africa, the family that Clay has befriended is murdered as he watches. Clay and Rania fight to uncover the mystery behind the disappearances and murders, and find those responsible. Both are lead inexorably to Egypt, where an act of shocking terrorist brutality will reveal not only why those they loved were sacrificed, but how they were both, indirectly, responsible.
