After masterminding a daring coup to smuggle a Soviet weapons scientist out of Yugoslavia, Peter Craig sets off for a romantic break with his new love and fellow British agent, Jane, blissfully unaware that, for the KGB spy-masters, their last adventure was the final straw.
As the happy couple discover the ancient, mysterious and romantic city, they are stalked by a KGB assassin and his hired help, an anarchist mercenary with an agenda of his own and a talent for playing the intelligence services off against one another.
Craig’s swansong brings him up against his most determined opponent yet, in a city where danger and subterfuge lurk just beneath the surface.
