Major Rake Ozenna's mission is simple: gain access to the Kato family - Japan's most dangerous crime empire - and stop the threat to America. But when the secret son of the Russian leader is executed and Rake's target, Sara Kato, is implicated in the murder, a political crisis between Russia, Japan and the US is set in motion. It's a race to protect Sara and earn her trust whilst escaping the inhospitable terrain of the icy Aland Islands. Meanwhile, Russia wants revenge for the murder, a catastrophic move when it is revealed that Japan is not the trusted ally America thought it was. As Rake learns the true extent of their deadly plans, he must draw on every ounce of his training to succeed.
