Summary
A counter-terrorist operation, code-named Wildlife, is being mounted on the British crown colony of Gibraltar. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, a private defense contractor who is also his bosom friend, and a shady American CIA operative of the evangelical far-right. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister's personal private secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it
Summary
Three years after the launch of a delicate counter-terrorist operation organized to capture a high-value jihadist arms buyer, a disgraced Special Forces solider delivers a message that raises questions about the operation's success and a possible cover-up, a situation that forces the soldier to choose between his conscience and his duty
