But through his network of spies, alarming reports reach him of a tribal uprising against the British, orchestrated by infamous German agent Wilhelm Wassmuss. Hostages have been taken and the War Office in London immediately despatch government assassin Captain Harold Quinn to Cairo on a deadly mission. With a shared purpose, Quinn and Lawrence begin the hazardous journey to the deserts of Persia. They soon discover that their German nemesis is an experienced master of stealth and deception.
