Deena King is a tough, moral barrister who has made a highly successful career of putting criminals behind bars. Al Virtue is a villain. Only once has he been called to pay for his crimes, and Deena King was the prosecutor. 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, for the forces of law and order, the safe return of the young students is not a priority - and Al and Deena are unwitting pawns in a deadly game.
