A globe-spanning, wrong-man thriller cowritten by the screenwriter of the number-one film Safe House
Kyle West is a wanted man. Having fled the country to escape false charges filed against him and his former boss, billionaire government contractor Christopher Chandler, Kyle is hiding in Cambodia, living on borrowed time and finding more and more reasons to be paranoid.
When a mysterious stranger named Julian Robinson walks into Kyle's favorite café and offers to swap passports with him, Kyle can't believe his luck. Robinson looks so much like Kyle it's almost unreal, and he seems in every way the yin to Kyle's yang - self-assured, charismatic, and wealthy beyond measure. Traveling on business, Robinson needs Kyle's passport to get to Africa, where a lucrative deal awaits. Kyle needs Robinson's passport to safely flee Cambodia. The swap seems almost too good to be true. Unfortunately, it is.
This one decision plunges Kyle into a Pandora's box of intrigue that threatens to swallow him whole. Suddenly he finds himself pursued by Russian oligarchs, Chinese operatives, the CIA, and a beautiful woman trained to kill. Robinson certainly isn't who he seemed, and time is running out for Kyle to discover who he is.
