After 20 years in the Navy Paul Richter is looking for a job, but he hadn't planned on getting mixed up with a deniable branch of the British security establishment. Unfortunately he needed the money and the job seemed straightforward. Unfortunately it isn't long before Richter realizes his new job doesn't have long term prospects as in reality he is the expendable bait in a complex trap involving British and Russian security services. Can Richter outsmart both sides and survive?
