He is reinstated as an Investigator in the Moscow Militsiya, only to find the home he once knew so well is crumbling under a new world order - the Russian mafia.
After the brutal murder of a black-market banker, Renko finds himself wrapped in the rich, ruthless and highly powerful underworld of the new elite.
The case will take Renko on an international journey that will lead him to someone he thought was lost to him forever - defector Irina Asanova.
