A ruthless US senator, the head of a deep black ops agency, thinks McIntyre has a unique ability that can bring out the very worst in people, sending them into a killing rage. The senator is intent on harnessing this dark talent to further his own ambitions. But when the black op agency kills McIntyre’s wife, Craig’s darkest thoughts turn to bloody revenge. He vows to kill the senator but has to act fast as the agency now have orders to hunt him down and bring him back: dead or alive.

The prime minister explores the lives of eight outstanding twentieth-century figures to uncover why some men and women make difficult decisions and do the right thing when easier and far less dangerous alternatives are open to them.
