Espionage takes to the twenty-first century playing fields, where rules are broken and remade outside the reach of governments and the law. Agents recruited for the clandestine organization known as Room 59 play hard, play for keeps…or die trying. But now new Room 59 agent Ajza Manaev, a top MI6 operative, discovers just how high the stakes really are when she goes undercover inside Chechnya’s terrorist training camps, where bitter young widows harness their hate as suicide bombers. Ajza doesn’t know she’s being manipulated by many sides of a deadly game. Her mysterious Room 59 handler has his own agenda, while the secret, silent mastermind behind a global destabilization plot hopes to push Ajza’s loyalties to the breaking point. And in a game where the ground is always shifting, Ajza is inducted by hellfire into Room 59’s harsh reality: she’s on her own.
