Scott is an elite spy happily retired and the author of an important criminology book, who comes out from his hideout to help out solving a murder case involving a criminal who has used his book. However, that first case will soon become complicated when the government of the USA asks him for his services to hunt an Islamic terrorist who may be plotting an attempt on American ground.

A spy thriller, taking place in the modern world whose main plot is enriched by the personal stories of the agent and the terrorist. Very well written, the story is interesting and has twists well worked out; it is not ast moving, not purposely but maybe because it gives many details and the rhythm is irregular. From a moral point of view, the first two chapters have a couple of brief and descriptive erotic passages; later the novel is clean, except a couple of sensual non descriptive passages.
