In a war of lies, the truth can kill.
Jonah Said is a loner and a troublemaker, shipped off by the British army to work with the UN in the buffer zone between Kuwait and Iraq, because they want him out of harm's way.
From the minute he lands, Jonah becomes drawn into a deadly spiral of corruption and conspiracy involving Russians, Americans, Arabs and Brits - and none of them tells the truth.
And the truth is more dangerous than even Jonah can imagine.
