After the Blackout

Moments before Axel Mueller was killed in Berlin, he phoned Amy Knight in London. She heard the shouting and the shots before everything went quiet. Desperately, she called Ethan Harris who was already in Berlin on other business.
As she joined him to investigate, they were soon under surveillance by the Berlin police and also in the sights of the German Intelligence Agency (BND), as they uncovered secrets from the Stasi background of BND agents, Huber and Schreiber.
Axel had also been investigating the Intelligence Conferences, a group of European agencies planning the development of "UberKon" a covert super intelligence agency.
As they are pursued by the police and BND, Ethan and Amy race to uncover the information which resulted in Axel's death while trying to avoid being killed themselves. In the process Ethan is shocked as Amy's true nature is revealed.
When DCI Scott investigates the case, he finds that Harris is not as squeaky clean as he initially thought; he has big debts and a gambling habit. When the investigation determines that Rachel was almost certainly killed by a professional hit-man, the focus turns to Ethan as the possible procurer of the contract.
Devastated, Ethan searches through Rachel’s belongings for some clues, bringing him into the underworld of GCHQ, MI6 and the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) in a chase across London and Berlin to uncover the truth.
