The world is a tumultuous place, filled with war, corruption, and an evil desire for politicians, terrorists, and other underworld figures to achieve or maintain power. In the middle of this chaos is a small cadre of international consultants, who profit by brokering illicit business deals, discrediting the competition, and making "headaches" go away. In return for their services, these consultants are compensated millions of dollars, as well as provided with the most seductive perks that any king, sheik, warlord, and dictator can offer. The most successful of these consultants is a man whose real identity is neither known by his clients nor the international law enforcement community. That is until the day he finds himself double-crossed by a competitor, at which point he must cooperate with the US Intelligence Community to avoid spending the rest of his life in a dark hole.
