Walking Back the Cat is an unusually riveting and exotic post-Cold War thriller from a master of the espionage genre. A Soviet-era KGB agent code named Parsifal lives under deep cover in a western American town. A specialist in what the KGB describes as 'wetwork' and the rest of the world calls murder, Parsifal discovers that he has come under the orders of a new Resident - one who is preparing an operation that will shake the world.
Into this cauldron of chaos comes Finn, a young veteran of the Gulf War, hoping against hope to land in a backwater where he can put the savagery he has witnessed in the desert behind him. Two incarnations of pure violence, Parsifal and Finn careen head on into each other when Finn discovers that someone is shaking down an Apache gambling casino, and Parsifal receieves instructions to kill him. Walking Back the Cat plunges the reader into the mesmerizing world of KGB agents, CIA spooks and modern day Apaches desperately trying to walk the fine line between their ancestral legacy and survival in a world dominated by White Eyes run riot.
