This powerful fast moving blend of recent history with the fictitious adventures of a British spy caught up in the war between Russia and Georgia over semi-independent Abkhazia is a thriller full of danger and suspense. Much of the action takes place against a background of trekking in the wilderness of the Caucasus Mountains.
The conflict escalates when Georgia invades and captures Sukhumi.
