Diplomatic immunity, n: freedom from arrest...and submission to police regulations usually accorded by international law to diplomatic agents.* From the most exciting writer of international thrillers since Robert Ludlum comes a riveting tale of intrigue that propels us into the heart of the United Nations. Here conscience and loyalty will collide in one man’s desperate race against time.
Shock waves ripple through the UN at the stunning news: a special envoy has been murdered in the basement. In the midst of a high-stakes General Assembly vote, the last thing officials want is more controversy. But Sam Windrush, a deputy in Legal Affairs, is determined to pursue his friend’s killer--despite roadblocks created by everyone from his supervisor and foreign ambassadors to his lover. Even worse, each of his suspects is protected by diplomatic immunity. Each can escape justice.
In less than a week UN officials will wrest the investigation away from am. In less than a week his fourteen-year career will be on the line. And as time runs out, Sam will face an even greater threat. A new suspect not protected by diplomatic immunity has come to light. The only suspect Sam wants to eliminate...the only one he cannot.
