Whitehall is in ruins, Britain's most significant mosque destroyed, the country adrift on a tide of political turmoil. As war rumbles on in the east, millions of refugees head west, desperately seeking the safety of Europe's borders. The conspiracy to change the course of European history has begun.

Yet before the gates of Europe can be thrown open, before the maps of the continent can finally be redrawn, two of them must be removed from the field of play. Permanently.
