Here were five people brought together by a poisoned past and by a unique opportunity to make a fortune. But there was terror and betrayal to be overcome - in one of the wildest and most unforgiving places on earth. Chris Ryder: burnt-out and on the run from an international organization that is determined to silence him. Alexei Volodya: ex counterterrorist specialist from the Russian Spetsnaz group. Miguel Corrales: wealthy Colombian businessman. His niece, Isabel Corrales: an attractive young woman with a bitter score to settle. Haxhi Markovic: self-trained assassin for hire, and sexual predator.
