Goa is used to a certain manageable level of brutality, used to mellowing its impact in a haze of pot smoke. Lately, though, the ugliness has gotten worse. Professionals have moved in on the drug trade, and even the sweetest smoke can't cover the stink of corruption that's pouring from the highest levels of local government.
George Sansi, the half-Indian/half-English cop from Bombay (who debuted in Season of the Monsoon), thinks he's seen about the worst the world can offer. But when he gets a call to help clean up Goa, he finds himself unprepared for the grimly dark side of paradise.

"You're looking at twenty days to put together a team and rehearse an operation to accomplish something no Western power has been able to do in eight years. No-one has ever rescued a hostage from Lebanon."
The PLO is about to acquire nine reasons why the US will be powerless to retaliate against its outrages in the future. Nine American hostages are for sale and Yasser Arafat wants to buy them. America wants them back.
The anti-terrorist mercenary force which exploded onto the pages of The Libyan Contract is reactivated for one final mission. Their orders are to bring the hostages home at any cost – and against all odds.
