With the military situation in the Middle East rapidly deteriorating and a UN Special Envoy about to hold crisis talks in London, MI-5 come across a teenager selling a highly sophisticated - and classified - electronic disruptor. It turns out the young man saw it being used in the assassination of a photo-journalist and managed to steal it when the assassin was struck by a car. They identify the assassin as one Michael Sands, a former MI-6 agent who had disappeared on an operation two tears ago and who, they assume, has now gone native. As Lucas North babysits the young thief and his mother, the rogue MI-6 agents try to recover something other than the weapon itself. Harry meanwhile receives a coded message from a sleeper agent in Russia indicating that Sugar Horse has been compromised and that she is coming to England. What he doesn't realize is that someone is also trying to frame him.
