- "One wrong turn on the road to revenge can take you over the edge!"
- — Tagline, from the front cover
For Frank and Joe, a journey in search of justice has turned into a personal mission of revenge. Their intercontinental chase has led them from Kenya to Stockholm, Sweden. Target: Phoenix Enterprises, an international combine of supersmugglers that the Hardys hold responsible for their father's death.
But the boys are just beginning to realize how powerful the group is. High-tech weaponry, terrorism, and human suffering are their stock-in-trade. Led on by a beautiful woman, pursued by a trained assassin, the Hardys find danger at every turn. But they'll take any road and any risk to expose the truth -- even if it leads across Europe and into the heart of the deadly Phoenix maze.
