The witnesses are terrorized into silence. But a British woman is present and hears the shot that ends her lovers life. A decade later, times have changed- the Wall has come down, and old enemies are now friends. An ex-captain in the Stasis counter espionage section, Dieter Krause, is a feted guest at the headquarters of the British Military Intelligence. He is a prized asset, able to give a detailed profile of a rising star in the Russian Ministry of Defense. He is confident that the skeletons in his past are hidden, until he is attacked by corporal Tracy Barnes. For her, the waiting time is over. She was there at the scene of the young mans murder ten years before. She knows Krause is responsible. But she cant prove it -- she needs the witnesses to talk. And to make them do so, she must follow Krause to Germany. But in a new country, still at war within itself, defeat may just mean a place on the mortuary slab.
