Several weeks have passed since the events of The Sleeping Kin. The judges are continuing their investigation into sleeper Sov-Agents infiltrating Mega-City One but the trail has gone cold. Meanwhile, the crime rate of the city continues to keep all judges busy and relocating unwilling Sov'Block immigrants introduces new stresses to the thin resources of the Justice Department. However, more sleeper agents are only just moving into position and they are planning to force Mega-City One to face the same terrible fate as East Meg One did all those years ago during the Apocalypse War.
The Kazan Gambit continues with the judges tackling dangerous scenarios that will take them from the streets of Mega-City One to a StratoSat station high in orbit where they will witness the explosive conclusion to Russian Roulette.
