2012. In Syria, civil war is raging. In Oman, the next President of Syria has been waiting seven years to fulfil his destiny. Now the time is right. In Lebanon, the Syrian war has ignited the country once more. As the security forces sweep up spies, one group decides to fight back - with devastating results. They must be found. They must be stopped. An exile returns and once again Captain Jihad Merhi of the Lebanese Internal Security Force is plunged into a battle against unknown enemies. Is there a traitor in the security services? Who is friend and who is foe? The stakes are high. And this time there might be no survivors. Assisted by Captain Fadi Lattouf of the Palestinian police, Merhi has to find THE BEIRUT CONFESSION - before The Confession finds him.
