“Love. A terrible, debilitating thing,” he mused. “I’ve always been so repelled by the prospect of love and death, both of which I regard to be inherently mortal afflictions that must plague mankind.”
The clock is ticking to create a cure for the virus that currently grips the world. But as the deadline approaches a key mission is sabotaged and Mira Iliev, a government scientist, finds herself unwittingly allied with the most hated man in Eastern Europe.
Demir Gudelj turns himself in after a very successful career as an international Drug Lord. But when his meticulously planned contract with the government goes awry, he finds not only his promised, full pardon, at risk but also his lifelong beliefs. What follows will test Demir’s wits, his will to survive, and his heart.
“Mira wonders if she could love Demir like she does if they were both on the same side. In the meantime, the war continues, and part of her is glad. Maybe he’d been correct? Maybe survival in times like these required more than peacetime morals? Maybe the meek did not have what it took to inherit the earth.”
A story of corruption, repentance, and forgiveness.
