He is a prized asset, able to give a detailed profile of a rising star in the Russian Ministry of Defence. He is confident that the skeletons in his past are hidden, until...nnCorporal Tracy Barnes, a clerk, attacks him in the officers’ mess. For her, the waiting time is over. She was there at the scene of the young man’s murder ten years before. She knows Krause is responsible. But she can’t prove it - she needs the witnesses to talk. To make them do so, she must follow Krause to Germany, determined to see a long-delayed victory for justice. But defeat may mean a place on the mortuary slab.
