Two lawyers from different backgrounds find that their worlds unexpectedly collide. One lawyer, who is also a Territorial Army Special Services Sergeant, is tasked to rescue an important British scientist from an African coup. The scientist has invented a defence against the sun's solar flares, vital to the world's safety, and is wanted by the African nation. The other lawyer is caught up in the African coup and also needs rescuing. The SAS lawyer is charged with rape on incontrovertible DNA evidence. Can the lawyer's new female legal team defend the charge which will devastate the lawyer's business and personal life? And what was the other lawyer's involvement in Africa?
