Twenty years from now, the Caliphate dominates the world, but things are not going well. Internal dissent is rising, revolt simmers, and renewed war is on the horizon. It is under these circumstances that a new Caliph calls for a peace conference in a desperate effort to fend off further conflict.
And it is just before this peace conference is due to begin that one of the delegates is discovered beheaded out in the desert. Who is trying to sabotage the conference and plunge the planet back into conflict? With time running out, the Caliph calls on Colin and Rose to find the answer.
