Officially, Max McLean doesn't exist. That protects his British masters, but it hasn't stopped them losing faith in him. Given one last chance to prove he's still their man, Max is sent to a military research facility to visit the bravest soldier he ever knew. But this former comrade-in-arms is locked up for his own protection, having lost his mind in an operation in West Africa. The reason? Absolute mortal terror. Max's mission is to find out why. Acting alone, Max lands in Sierra Leone with his friend's final words ringing in his ears:
'They're coming, Max. They're coming . . .'
