Two years ago George held Khalil captive, trying to induce him to disclose a terrorist plot and expose his organization. Khalil escaped, shooting George in the process. Now, in the turmoil of Cairo's protests the tables have turned, or have they? George is no longer a government interrogator but rather has become a celebrity journalist. With his troubled photographer, Emine, he's documenting the Egyptian revolution directly from the streets. Khalil is juggling a trainee assassin, a plot to assassinate the liberal Egyptian presidential candidate on American soil and a long lost love. What ensues is a mad dash from Cairo, to the Aswan Dam, then the streets of Manhattan as the men try to outguess each other, both aware that time is running out and only one can emerge victorious. Either Khalil will succeed in his plot or George will figure out the relevant details and stop him. Across time and continents, the two men find themselves sparring, each aiming to lead the world in a different direction. Yet ultimately their internal battles put them both at greater risk than does the other. Who will escape?
