Jonathan has gone to England to rest, but his vacation is interrupted when the head of British Intelligence needs his highly skilled services. Blackmailed into performing another “sanction”—a top-secret political assassination—Jonathan must take over the mission of an agent whose murder was so bizarre and terrifying that no other agent was willing to replace him. Once again Hemlock’s life hangs in the balance—but this time the penalty for failure is more grotesquely lethal than ever before. His task is to locate a set of secretly made films that incriminate a number of high-ranking British officials; his target is a top underworld figure who delights in debauchery and torture. Facing this threat, Jonathan is drawn into a labyrinthine network of intrigue and depravity.
