A novel on the level of Robert Ludlum and Ken Follett tells the story of a war photographer, who discovers a stranger's body hanging from a tree on his property. The body bears the same tatoo as a known terrorist's body. Seeking the connection to the two killings leads to one of the most amoral villains ever known.
