Diana plans to be the most powerful politician in the world, and Janice intends to prevent her succeeding.

Both intend to recruit him for different reasons, but instead of being a lynch pin, he finds himself a pawn. When Janice’s husband and Diana’s partner disappear in mysterious circumstances, Callum fears the worst. Although he tries to return to Manchester, fate prevents him.

Soon to attend a San Diego conference, he discovers the two women intend to follow and continue their feud there. A worrying prophecy haunts him – a prediction that of the three who go to America, one will die, one will be disfigured, and only one will survive. Which one will he be?

No longer in control, he must finally trust one of the women, even though the prophesy comes to pass.
