Summary
In a world where loyalties are easily abandoned and allegiances can be bought, a new and deadlier terrorist threat has emerged -- free-agent killers! The Cold War may be over, but a new world order keeps a group of covert mercenaries employed by the highest bidder. These operatives, known as "Ronin," are assembled in France by a mysterious client for a seemingly routine mission: steal a top-secret briefcase. But the simple task soon proves explosive as other underworld organizations vie for the same prize
