Here's a short synopsis:
The basic tale is timeless; of brave men and women fighting for a cause unworthy of their courage. A terrorist attack of world-shaking proportions blasts open this tale of a Sri Lankan terror group with a deadly secret it desperately wants to hide. Hunted by special forces, the terrorists take Sri Lanka’s war to the streets of Europe and North America. Highly-trained killers race against the clock and each other as violent strategies unfold at heart-stopping speed. Car bombs, high-level
assassinations, and an international hijack stun the world, while an Indian naval task force brings Sri Lanka and South Asia to the brink of total war. And at the centre of it all, the spy masters on both sides pull their strings in a fast-paced, tightly-woven novel guarranteed to
keep you racing long into the night.

If anyone wants to buy the book, it's available at : http://www.ph-books.com/# which I recommend. It's the publisher's site, and while it's not so user-friendly (you have to email your request) it'll probably reach you faster. You can also get it here: http://www.vijithayapa.com//pdesceription.php?id=23177 which is a online bookshop.
