Summary: Following FREEDOM BROKER. International kidnap expert Thea Paris is escorting two former child soldiers on a plane flying between Africa and London when the Boeing Business Jet is highjacked. The pilot has locked himself into the cockpit and diverts the plane to a deserted airstrip in Libya. Forced to leave the jet to investigate, Thea comes face-to-face with a former nemesis. Her old foe imprisons her in the hangar, and the plane takes off. The kidnapper makes a strange demand for the return of the hostages: Thea must deliver a truckload of weapons and other material to a destination in Europe.
