As part of the Special Section of Britain's Ministry of Intelligence, TaraChace is one of a handful of operatives they call when they need to clean up amess, or to make a new one. It's a world of questionable morals. For instance,is it better to assassinate a general in the Russian mafia rather than allow himto peddle more guns and drugs in underprivileged countries? Tara's bosses seemto think so. But the Russian mafia ask their own question -- once someonehas taken the life of one of their officers, can they continue to let thatperson live? Greg Rucka peels back the lid on the traditional espionage story tosee the nastiness inside, and Steve Rolston brings it to life with stunningclarity.
