A bloodstained man runs half naked down a motorway at night dodging high-speed traffic - and worse.
Cornered by police, admitted to a psychiatric ward suffering from trauma-induced amnesia, all he can recall is a detailed knowledge of sophisticated weaponry and military techniques that indicates a background in terrorism.
When two armed soldiers guarding his room are murdered and Dr Elizabeth Santer, the psychiatrist assigned to his case, is abducted at gunpoint a desperate hunt begins for a dangerous killer.
Terrorist - murderer - kidnapper - thief whatever he is, he remembers a town in Wales and it is to Wales he drags Elizabeth Santer with the security forces in all-out pursuit.
There, a violent and bloody confrontation exposes a horrifying story of treachery and political cover-up.
Is Elizabeth in the hands of a homicidal terrorist or an innocent pawn?
Her life depends on the right answer. He continued to dodge between vans, trucks, cars; fearful lest his assailants had reached the motorway.
Running - running - his heart hammering so fiercely he wondered why it hadn't burst. Blood surged through his veins, the drumbeat of pulses beating time with his footfalls as he swerved from lane to lane, and still they kept coming.
Weaving...roaring...blasting...until a single soft sound alerted every fibre of his being.
