From the Back Cover:

In one of the most hostile and lawless places in the Russian Federation, Novyy Urengoy, Siberia, an American gas company executive is found dead, the apparent victim of a casual robbery or the local mafia. Whatever the truth, Alexei Vorontsyev, chief of detectives, is unlikely to solve the crime, confronted as he is by a town awash with immigrant labour, cheap heroin, organized crime and the uncaring multinationals.

In Washington, the chief executive of the gas company and his wife are murdered in their opulent mansion during an interrupted robbery. John Lock, State Department expert on Russian and former CIA agent, vows revenge on the killers of his beloved sister, Beth, and his brother-in-law Billy Grainger.

There is no possible connection between the two crimes: they are merely two eruptions of modern lawlessness – or are they? Vorontsyev is inexorably forced to explore a connection between the executive's murder and heroin smuggling. Lock, in his search for the wild justice of revenge, finds himself pursued and challenged at every turn as he moves closer to the heart of darkness and the motives for his sister's death. Both men seek justice, the price of which , for each of them, becomes almost impossible to pay.

Craig Thomas's new novel confronts the plague of the modern Russian mafia and its international expansion in an enthralling story of the struggle for justice in an increasingly dangerous and lawless world. Employing all his customary skills of characterization, narrative and evocation of place he dramatizes a more serious menace to the security of the West than was ever posed by the Soviet Union and its armies – the threat of organized crime in Russia.

Craig Thomas was educated at University College, Cardiff, where he gained his MA in 1967. He is the author of fifteen bestselling novels, including 'Firefox', and, most recently, 'Winter Hawk', 'All the Grey Cats', 'The Last Raven', 'A Hooded Crow' and 'Playing With Cobras', all of which spring from his interest in geopolitical tensions and conflicts.

Craig Thomas is married and lives with his wife and two tortoiseshell cats in Staffordshire. His interests include cricket, gardening and music, especially classical music and jazz. He is also interested in philosophy and political theory (his collection of essays, 'There is to Here', is published by Fontana Press).
