Najah, after infiltrating the Mafia as part of Project Insiders, is continuing her perilous mission: to identify the leaders of the High Council of organised crime syndicates. She finds herself in Moscow with her boss, Sam Nachez. Danger is everywhere, though. The Council’s chief of security still suspects her, Russia is plagued with ultra-violent power struggles ... and even her guerrilla past could catch up with her at any time…

Let me just write that the fact there was been no further news on this series being picked up for US movie treatment shows how bad things have gotten in movie-land.  If you recall the review of volume1 I mentioned that Jessica Alba's name was put forward to play the lead character.  Yeah, Hollywood, you stick with constant reboots!

Naja looks good and that just hides the secret of what her task is and if you don't know...shame on you.  But take a day off, Naja.  Go to a political rally.  Watch an assassination. Then its motorbikes, chases, gunfire, crashing helicopters and just what is the US President up to?

Happy ending, though, as Naja...oh. She's going to be executed.

Garreta and Bartoll at their best.
