Description

A House Built on Sand takes place in Marrakesh, Morocco sometime before the events of A Gilded Cage. Construction mogul Kong Tuo-Kwang is meeting with an architect from rival Hamilton-Lowe, Matthieu Mendola. Mendola intends to leak confidential internal documents to Kong.

Mission Briefing

"Good afternoon 47. Your destination is Marrakesh, Morocco. Your targets: Kong Tuo-Kwang, head of a Chinese construction conglomerate and Matthieu Mendola, chief architect at Tuo-Kwang's biggest rival, Hamilton-Lowe.

Mendola plans to double-cross his employer and leak non-disclosable company documents to Tuo-Kwang, including the confidential offer for a multi-billion dollar real estate project. In response, Hamilton-Lowe has requested that we eliminate both men and send their competition a clear message.

Kong has rented a rooftop patio for the meeting, but the location is as of yet unclear. So, track them and eliminate them, and reclaim the documents. Good luck, 47."
