About the book

May 2015. A Dutch NATO diplomat disappears on a secret mission and with him a butterfly guide with codes goes missing. The trail initially leads to the Italian Mafia and to Greece. NATO chief director Charles Cavendish has more than thirty years of experience in the secret service and he decides to put together an unusual team: secret agent Adam Kaplan, who is trying to come to terms with the tragic death of his wife, and Carrie Montevagio, an inexperienced and spirited Sicilian who fled her native village years ago and has been in hiding in the Netherlands ever since. Her contacts with the Mafia could help her find the missing diplomat – but returning to Sicily will certainly put her life in danger
