Investigating a claim in Saudi Arabia, Guy Sinclair, a Boston insurance executive, uncovers a connection between his client and an international money-laundering network. After he is arrested for a murder he did not commit, his employer unexpectedly abandons him. When he faces beheading the US State Department refrains from intervening. With Saudi Arabia facing internal unrest, the US government believes Sinclair's execution may win popularity for the beleaguered regime.
Kamila, an attractive American academic working for the embassy, discovers Sinclair's client is financing Saudi dissidents. Convinced of Sinclair's innocence, she plots his escape. Though he suspects her of a terrorist connection, he soon has no choice. He escapes from custody only to face an even greater danger from an unseen enemy. The country is erupting into revolution as he and Kamila race to a border which is about to close.
Pursued by the FBI, the CIA and a financial network headed by Sir Kenneth Pryce-Cramer, chairman of a London insurance giant, they follow a trail which leads close to home, bringing a deadly threat to Sinclair's family.
