Steve Fraser has planned the perfect weekend on the Southeast Asian island of Sunda. But Sunda is newly independent, and not entirely stable, and a fundamentalist Islamic group is determined to overthrow the provisional government.

Instead of enjoying a hedonistic weekend with the beautiful Rosalie, Fraser finds himself held hostage with her under the fanatical group’s control.

As the government launches a counterattack, the couple’s survival depends on their ability to dodge bullets, lies and the shifting loyalties of the coup’s lieutenants.
