Jonas Wilde's business is death. Under the code-name Eliminator he is the official (unofficial) assassin for British Intelligence, with over thirty successful 'eliminations' to his credit making him a legend in the shadowy world of international espionage. But being a legend can be dangerous.

Wilde's latest mission, to eliminate defecting British scientist Sir Everett Langtree, takes Wilde behind the Iron Curtain, first to Warsaw and then Moscow - and straight into the clutches of his sworn enemies in the KGB. Even when it seems to have become a suicide mission, Wilde is determined to do the one thing he does superbly well - kill - and his one chance of survival could lie in using that skill for the benefit of the KGB!
