A high-tension page-turner...ready to run with the likes of Reacher or Bourne. (Kirkus Reviews)

When a body with Russian military tattoos is found floating in a lake outside Berlin, the CIA immediately takes notice. The body is identified as the director of Russias Foundation for Advanced Nuclear Research, who is also a CIA asset. And the murder coincides with the defection of one of the CIAs upper-level officers.

Alden Maines is jaded after years in the CIA cleaning up the messes of incompetent political appointees in dangerous foreign posts. When he is passed over for promotion, Maines crosses the Rubicon and decides to cash in as a double agent for Russia.

But while Maines dreams of off-shore bank accounts and a new secret life, Arkady Lavrov of Russias intelligence service (GRU) has other plans. He immediately announces Mainess defection to the world and then pumps him for every last ounce of intel, including the names of every agent in the CIAs Moscow Station and their assets working in the Kremlin. But why would Lavrov burn an asset whose intel and access could pay dividends for years to come? What is Lavrov up to?

Traveling from Langley to Berlin and finally Moscowworking black without backupanalyst Jonathan Burke and agent Kyra Stryker are up against their most formidable enemy yet, and their lives and the fate of Americas most important assets in the New Cold War hang in the balance.
