John Baran’s best friend dies from a bizarre, massive stroke he suffered in Moscow under mysterious conditions. John suspects foul play and goes to Moscow to get answers. Russian interests, determined to guard their secrets, engage the KGB and a GRU seductress to make sure he doesn’t pick up where his friend left off–by any means necessary.
The Moscow-based CIA discovers a KGB plot to overthrow President Gorbachev and stop his democratic reforms. As a treacherous diversion, the conspirators plan a devastating bioweapon attack on U.S. soil.
The political upheaval hurls John into espionage, a bio-terror plot, and the middle of hard-line communists’ attempt to reverse history. His quest to avenge one death makes him the only man who can save countless American lives and help derail a second Bolshevik revolution–if he can stay alive.
