Nothing is what it first appears...

Sir Mark Brydon is the British Ambassador to Washington, who finds himself at the centre of a terrifying conspiracy that could bring down Western Government.

As Mark the Ambassador fights to prevent a looming war, Mark the man is faced with a terrible dilemma. In a world of high stakes where manipulation of information means ultimate power – who can Brydon trust? As Mark slowly realises that he's being played by an invisible puppeteer, he cannot even begin to imagine where the conspiracy ends.

At what point do you sacrifice the truth for the sake of your nation? At what point do you sacrifice your nation for the truth?
