What you need to know before your trail

Gunnhildur reluctantly allows herself to be taken off police duties to act as bodyguard to a man with a price on his head . . .

Hidden away in a secure house outside Reykjavík, Gunna and the high-profile stranger, a guest of the interiors minister, are thrown together – too close for comfort. They soon find they are neither as safe nor as carefully hidden as Gunna and her boss had thought. Conflicting glimpses of the man’s past start to emerge as the press begin to sniff him out, as does another group with their own reasons for locating him. Gunna struggles to come to terms with protecting the life of a man who may have the lives of many on his conscience – or indeed may be the philanthropist he claims to be.

Isolated together, the friction grows between Gunna and the foreign visitor, and she realises they are out of their depth as the trails lead from the house outside Reykjavík to Brussels, Russia and the Middle East.

Travel Guide

Reykjavik to the Middle East

Gunnhildur finds herself involved in a dangerous global conspiracy, which takes her from Reykjavik and onto quite a journey. She’s going to need all her training and gritty capabilities for this one.

European migration issues are a major part of the plot and the action heads out to Russia and the Middle East. These issues can get controversial as not all those involved in the plight of these poor people are genuine according to what goes on in this novel. There is a real political theme and controversy here with the visit of a right wing American high on the list..

From the corridors of power to the dark edges of society…

The settings of Russia and The Middle East are vague and more mentioned off the page as it were than on it.
