    • Synopsis
    • David Barrabas a former CIA operative based in Europe, has taken a new identity as a diplomatic lawyer and family man, vowing before God to never kill again.  When David returns for the first time to Prague for a speaking engagement, his fourteen year-old daughter, Nena, is kidnapped and marked for organ harvesting by a ruthless Ukrainian white slave trader seeking revenge from David's for his father’s death.  

      To get Nena back safely he must trade his former CIA operative Walters for his daughter.  In order to t this David must navigate the eastern European underworld -- taking on the kingpin’s network of henchmen, assassins, and corrupt government officials while struggling with his own personal vow to no longer commit violence.  David finds that most of his old Prague allies have become enemies (or are dead) and he can trust no one except Sally, a British human rights lawyer he must train to be an adept killer.  Together, they destroy the kingpin's white slavery operation and save Isabel just before she crosses into Ukraine and certain death.
