Mick Grundy has started sleeping in an empty lion’s cage in Tacoma, only to be tracked down by a resourceful and attractive Russian agent named Sasha. He is unwillingly paired with a stunningly beautiful FBI agent, and together they follow the bodies left by Sasha as they are lured into a chase ending with a spectacular gunfight with Russian agents in a Las Vegas casino.
Mick accompanies Sasha to Berlin as she tries to convince him to kill one of the Russian intelligence chiefs. She introduces Mick to her superior, a shadowy figure somehow involved with Mick’s birth. Mick’s decision to take on the assassination is complicated by the capture of his partner by foreign operatives.
