A powerless runaway trained to be a soldier. An ex-conman with a unique gift. A captive who would rather remain that way than face their destiny. When a string of murders appears to connect three different people, each from a different continent, they - and their motley crew of companions - set out to discover who wanted their paths to cross and why...before another victim is claimed.
