The hunt for their prey will lead from Hong Kong to Reykjavik to a luxury gambling resort deep in the Laotian jungle. Yet always this criminal mastermind remains one step ahead.
The only way DownvoteA??s creator can stop Smith is to kill him . . . because while this diabolical genius can run, thereA??s no hiding from a man who can read minds.
