Modern warfare is becoming increasingly tricky, as the threat to the world’s super-power governments appears less likely to come from countries with deeply contrasting political regimes, and more likely to come from terrorism and organised crime. Najah Cruz is an American spy with a difference. Colombian by birth and hand-picked for her ability to fight her way out of sticky situations, her mission is to infiltrate the world’s largest organised crime syndicates with a view to bringing them down from the inside.
This first volume, collecting two of the original French stories, sees Najah charming her way into the luxurious international lifestyle of a mafia boss. Don’t expect too many conclusions though – Najah’s adventures are set to continue in future volumes: Missiles for Islamabad; The Afghan Trap; and Takeover Bid on the Kremlin.
