"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Taras Stepaniak is half Russian, half Ukrainian, a self serving womaniser easily recruited by the Russian patriot, Colonel Nikolai Krasin, to help destabilise the newly independent Ukraine, a country which has inherited a crippling Soviet economy – and a lethal Soviet nuclear arsenal.
The amoral Stepeniak spins his web of treachery around the aspiring democrats of the new nation, but the greater his betrayals, the deeper he sees into his own soul.
Too late. He is trapped in a deadly game that is being played out to a terrifying conclusion.
“A well researched, compellingly plausible thriller … the climax is explosive”
“The author appears to know more than your average thriller writer might reasonably be expected to know about rivalries between the former Soviet republics in general and their nuclear weapons in particular … a rip-roaring read and the suspense is sustained to the very last page”
“A moving, remarkable book”
