THIS IS THE FIRST EPISODE OF A SERIALISED THRILLER
When the son of an American businessman is kidnapped in Malaysia, it marks the beginning of the unthinkable — an Islamist uprising that pits Shiites against Sunnis. It’s a civil war that threatens to escalate and set the whole of Southeast Asia ablaze.
Maya Raines is the covert operator brought in to help resolve the situation. Half-Malaysian and half-American, she has razor-sharp instincts, and she’s driven by an obsession to settle a personal debt.
But her mission will be anything but easy, and as she searches the back alleys and ghettos of a nation on the verge of collapse, she will have to ask herself the hardest question of all: how do you stay moral in an immoral war?
