Billions of dollars are missing from Iraqi banks, and journalist Luca Terracini will risk everything to discover where it is. His Iraqi-American background has made it easier for him to infiltrate the darkest corners of the war, but death of his beloved Nicola in a suicide bombing has made him reckless. In pursuit of the money, he meets UN representative Daniela Garner, who seems to know more about the heist than anyone. As Luca gets closer, his actions begin to reverberate around the world. As usual, it's all about the money: who has it, who's lost it, and who's ultimately going to pay, as clandestine agents emerge from the shadows and powerful nations seek to control information and bury secrets, no matter the cost.

"A fine and ambitious thriller...the serpentine plot is rooted in truth...thoroughly compelling."-- Booklist, Starred Review
