Synopsis

Inspired by true events. Some aspects have been fictionalised for dramatic purposes. Working in both camps she uncovers underhand deals and various plots of espionage and counterespionage. Her enemies think they are using her until she becomes a threat for both sides and somebody has her assassinated.

A Moscow detective, Ivanov, risks his life more than once, to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death. As Ivanov retraces Anna’s steps, from Moscow, London to Bogota and Qatar, he learns about her kind, loving nature yet determination to reveal the truth about the war in her articles and yet she had secrets of her own. The trail leads him into a dangerous web of conspiracy and espionage involving: chemical warfare, an overdue library book, a secret affair, an undetectable gun, a missing daughter, co-ordinated terrorists attacks and the assassination of the President.
