Around the world, my face has many names. Long ago, when I was a complete person, I was somebody called Stephanie Patrick. But almost nobody remembers her now. Sometimes, not even me.
Stephanie Patrick has left behind the dark world of spies, lies, and aliases, to live a normal civilian life in London. But then a shocking discovery envelops her, forcing her back into her former life. Scientific and weapons secrets and personnel are being sent via the people-smuggling routes from China, through Albania and the former Yugoslavia to Europe and Britain.
Stephanie's personal feelings for one of the victims of this trade causes her to make a rare professional mistake, and the consequences are far-reaching, vicious and challenging, even for her skills and expertise.
