When Donald Macleod, a scion of the mobile phone industry, suspects that subliminal messages transmitted over a German mobile phone network are impacting local by-elections in favour of the Neo-Nazi candidates, he sets out to find proof. To do so, he must confront Heinrich Von Scheer, owner of the German network. But before he can, Donald’s plane crashes in the Swiss Alps and he is missing, presumed killed. His son, Jack, suspects Von Scheer, and determines to expose him. But Jack soon finds himself the subject of a Europe-wide manhunt, pursued by the Neo-Nazis as well as the authorities. Desperate and on the run, Jack seeks the help of his friend, Harry Donovan, and Fabiana Santini, an Interpol inspector who risks everything for this case – and for love.
As the murder mystery deepens, Jack enlists more assistance in the form of a Swedish professor, a reformed Dutch smuggler, an embittered French telecommunications executive and a mysterious protector. Before he is hunted down, Jack must reach England – and the one man on earth who can help them …
