An international conspiracy is about to shake the world, and nothing stands in its way apart from the love of a father and mother for their only child. It starts in the Swiss Alps, where a teenage boy, Ruari, is abducted. Ruari’s father is a newspaper owner in possession of diaries that can make or break leaders around the globe. When Ruari disappears, his father is left powerless while his mother turns to Harry Jones, the lover she walked out on many years ago. Much more than one life is at stake as the past comes back to decide who will live, and how many will not.
