Discovery means certain death. And he’s running out of time.
It’s 1990, and Dmitry Kalyagin is about to attain membership in Gorbachev’s politburo when his long-dormant status as a “mole” for the British is suddenly reactivated.
English intelligence man George Parker, feeling indebted to Kalyagin, initiates a covert effort to pull the agent out before his identity can be uncovered by the Soviets.
But as the body count starts to rise, Parker’s attempts to protect Kalyagin are hampered by both Russian ruthlessness and British indifference. As desperation begins to set in, the battle to save Kalyagin will lead to a climactic showdown in the Moscow streets, between two networks of spies.
A taut, suspense-filled Cold War thriller from an author who reported from the heart of Moscow, perfect for fans of John le Carré, Ken Follett and Frederick Forsyth.
