Publisher's Summary

From the most exciting writer of international thrillers since Robert Ludlum comes a riveting tale of intrigue that takes you right into the heart of the United Nations. Shock ripples through the U.N. at the stunning news: a special envoy has been murdered in the basement. For Sam Windrush, First Deputy of Legal Affairs, the death of his friend couldn't be more devastating. Years ago, a personal tragedy bound the two men together, and now Sam is determined to find the killer - despite intense pressure to abandon the investigation. Suddenly Sam is up against roadblocks - created by everyone from his supervisor and foreign ambassadors to his lover; and each has an agenda to protect.The worst is yet to come. Sam uncovers too many disturbing coincidences: security cameras turned off for maintenance, a press corps member who knows too much, the suspicious activities of the victim himself, and a hushed-up review of a special committee. Sam has a score of suspects, but each one is protected by diplomatic immunity. Each one can escape justice.In less than a week U.N. officials will wrest the investigation away from Sam and hand it to the NYPD. In less than a week, his 14-year career will be on the line. And as time runs out he will face an even greater threat. Someone has found a new suspect. A suspect not protected by diplomatic immunity. The only suspect not even Sam can eliminate.
