Colombia, 1997. Fergus Watts ha imparato nello Special Air Service a difendersi da un attacco improvviso, ma quando un proiettile gli entra nella coscia e vede il sangue sgorgare dalla ferita, invano tenta di strisciare verso un riparo: catturato, viene lasciato marcire in un carcere. Inghilterra, 2005. Danny Watts è orfano e ha un sogno: diventare un soldato. Ce l'ha quasi fatta, ma subentra un ostacolo: suo nonno Fergus, latitante, ha tradito il SAS e il suo Paese per soldi. Soldi legati al narcotraffico. Così almeno dicono a Danny, che per questo vede svanire il suo sogno.A meno che non trovi Fergus, ma dove? Può un ragazzo, sia pure arrabbiato e desideroso di vendetta, trovare un uomo addestrato a evitare la cattura, esperto in esplosivi e in missioni segrete? Forse qualcuno vuole che lui trovi suo nonno. Qualcuno che considera Fergus un problema da risolvere una volta per tutte, a ogni costo. Chi? E perché? La vita di Danny sta per cambiare...
