Disillusioned with the Putin Government, famous Russian writer Alexander Kurbsky wants to disappear into the West. However, he knows how the news will be greeted at home - he's seen his countrymen die mysteriously, victims of the thuggish Russian security services. So he makes elaborate plans with Charles Ferguson, Sean Dillon and the rest of the 'Prime Minister's private army' for his escape and concealment. For the West it seems a real coup, but Kurbsky still works for the Russians. The plan is to infiltrate British and American intelligence at the highest levels, and he has his own motivations for doing the most effective job possible. He does not care what he has to do or where he has to go...or whom he has to kill.
