Agent Kasper is a man with a staggering résumé: a former police officer, a former airline pilot, a firearms expert, a highly accomplished practitioner of several of the martial arts, and a secret agent par excellence. In the end his competence is his undoing. While in Phnom Penh, Kasper is approached by the CIA to track down the source of the so-called "supernotes" that are flooding Southeast Asia - illegal US banknotes counterfeited so perfectly as to be undetectable, even by sophisticated machines.
Agent Kasper is kidnapped in Cambodia whilst on a mission for the CIA to investigate counterfeit money schemes. He is supposed to disappear forever. Because Kasper has uncovered something so terrible, so explosive and so damaging that the intelligence service he works for wants him dead. When Kasper finds himself in the appalling squalor of one of the world's most notorious prison camps near Phnom Penh, the corrupt guards sent to execute him spot an opportunity and wonder - is Kasper worth more alive?
