Professional 'cleaner' Jonathan Quinn has a new client and a strange job: find and remove the remains of a body hidden twenty years ago inside the walls of a London building, before the building is demolished. But Quinn and his team are being watched.

Because a plot stretching from the former Soviet Union to Hong Kong, from Paris to London, from Los Angeles to Maine is rapidly falling apart. And, Quinn hasn't just been hired to tie up loose ends - he is one.
