Horton and Cantelli are called to a nursing home where an elderly resident claims she’s been attacked by an intruder.

Soon, to his surprise, Horton finds he is caught up in a complex investigation that has far-reaching international implications. With the pressure on to find the killers, and hampered by his belief that his bosses are lying to him, Horton discovers that he’s stepped into a web of intrigue, deception and corruption that stretches far back into the past.
