One woman, one man, nine passports. It's all a question of identity . . .
Stephanie Patrick, one time intelligence operator, one time freelance troubleshooter under a German terrorist's name, mistress of a hundred disguises and names, is now resting. Or is she? Or is one of her alter egos behind the operations in New York, Sarajevo and Moscow?
Konstantin Komarov, one time boy hoodlum, friend to criminals, politicians and big business all over the world, is the rare straight dealer. Or is he? The man whose reputation for impartiality brings to his door in Moscow or New York folks with money to invest, with cross-border business to be done, is only interested in legitimate, albeit risky, deals. Or is he?
Between them stands the shadowy figure of Koba, the alias for a man all the intelligence services want to find. But are their obligations to those who direct them and their need to survive, stronger than their attraction to each other? Can the very different worlds from which they come keep them apart, forever?
'Chameleon' is a brilliant, edgy thriller of two people caught in the turbulence of terrorism.
