In Rakehell, John Caul is a burnt out agent of the 'Empire of Spies', the not-so-United Kingdom. He’s sent on an easy job: investigate Stefan Rakehell, a reclusive technology baron living in splendid isolation at sea.
Over a meal of deadly fugu blowfish Caul reaches his conclusion: Rakehell is mad, but inconsequential. When Rakehell is murdered and Caul fails to catch the killers, he is assigned to a disaster site in the Russian tundra. The connection between the two events reveals a new kind of terrorism, and a creed that puts humans last.
Caul’s only help is whoever is at hand as he careens across the globe: a painter with a secret; an honorable diplomat; a risk-taking TV producer; a circus performer. The world is already on the edge of chaos; can they save it from a plot that threatens destruction around the globe?

In a world on the edge, what kind of people can make a difference? John Caul is a brutal instrument of international action for the British 'Empire of Spies.'

With three remarkable women joining the chase, the secretive Betsy Gale, adventurous newshound Cora Love, and para-athletic circus star Beatrix Carrier, Caul has just one chance to save the world from a final hammer blow.
