A Shadow Intelligence

Thu, 23 Sep 2021
7.00pm - 8.00pm
When his lover and fellow spy Joanna Lake disappears, free-floating MI6 operative Elliot Kane decides to go to Kazakhstan to find her. Kane is unaware of new dangers in the post-Soviet republic. At the core of this story is the coldblooded campaign for control of the natural oil in the region. Rumbling in the background is another battle being waged between Kazakh nationalists and citizens under the influence of a Russian disinformation campaign.
