Paris, 2017. An Islamic Caliphate has ruled Europe for over 300 years . . .
Kamal Agha is a patriot. A Special Investigator for the secret police, Kamal is part of the battle against increasing political turmoil throughout the continent. But the Caliphate's iron fist spares no one, and Kamal's own family has attracted the regime's ever-watchful eye.
Into his troubled life comes a mysterious stranger, Ayman Rasheed, found near the banks of the River Seine, naked and covered in tattoos. Tattoos which hint at an enormous secret - one which has changed the history of the world beyond recognition.
Kamal has stumbled across knowledge so dangerous that the Caliphate will do anything to suppress it, leaving him no choice but to run. Can he save himself and his family? And if he does, what might that mean for the existence of the Caliphate itself - its past, its present, and its future.
