  • "W Gibraltarze, najcenniejszej brytyjskiej kolonii, ma miejsce tajna operacja pod kryptonimem "Fauna i Flora". Jej celem jest uprowadzenie przedstawiciela prywatnej wojskowej firmy dostarczającej broń muzułmańskim terrorystom. Pomysłodawcami projektu są wiceminister spraw zagranicznych Wielkiej Brytanii i jego bliski przyjaciel, prywatny kontraktor wojskowy. Akcja jest objęta ścisłą tajemnicą i nawet osobisty sekretarz ministra, Toby Bell, nie zna jej szczegółów. Gdy tylko Toby zaczyna podejrzewać spisek, szybko zostaje odesłany na odległą placówkę dyplomatyczną. Trzy lata później wezwany przez Sir Christophera Probyna, emerytowanego brytyjskiego dyplomatę, do jego dworu w Kornwalii, i czujnie obserwowany przez córkę Probyna, Emily, Toby będzie zmuszony wybrać między sumieniem a obowiązkiem. Czy aby zło zatriumfowało, wystarczy, by dobrzy ludzie milczeli?"
