When Kurt Austin rescues the crew of a Scottish trawler, he finds himself trying to save them not once but twice. First, from the violent storm that dashes their vessel into jagged rocks and, second, from the deadly gunmen desperate to get their hands on its lost cargo of stolen Egyptian artefacts. Soon Kurt—with the assistance of resourceful MI5 agent Morgan Manning—is on the hunt for the source of these artefacts. It's a journey that takes them around the world and draws the fury of the mysterious Bloodstone group—an international network of murderous individuals who'll kill anyone in their way. But what do gunmen want with ancient loot? One thing is for sure, if Kurt is to find out he's going to be in the cross hairs of some ruthless and well-armed foes . . .
