FROM THE ASHES OF THE COLD WAR, A NEW AND ALL-TOO-DEADLY THREAT TO WORLD PEACE ARISES…
Novvy Urengoy, Siberia.
In one of the most hostile and lawless places in the Russian Federation, an American gas company executive is found dead, the apparent victim of a casual robbery or the local mafia. Alexei Vorontsyev, chief of detectives, finds his investigation mysteriously blocked from every side.
The chief executive of the gas company and his wife are murdered in their opulent mansion. John Lock, State Department expert on Russia and former CIA agent, vows revenge on the killers of his beloved sister and brother-in-law.
There is no possible connection between the two crimes; they are merely two eruptions of modern lawlessness – or are they? The answer lies in Siberia, where a conspiracy of ruthless corruption, as deadly as it is sinister, poses a more serious threat to the security of the West than ever did the Soviet Union and its armies. Each man seeks justice – but what happens when the price becomes too much to pay?
