Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553574604, Mass Market Paperback)Frederick Forsyth, best known for his spy novels The Day of The Jackal and The Odessa File, sets this post-communist thriller during 1999 in Russia, a land whose current stresses have worsened to breaking point. Ex-C.I.A. agent Jason Monk is sent in by a clandestine western group to try and stop the election of a sinister nationalist, Igor Komarov, who seems about to be installed in the Kremlin. The Russian Mafia and Komarov's nationalist militia make nasty enemies. As usual Forsyth gives his story an authentic feel with minute attention to detail and the use of real public figures in the background.

In the summer of 1999 Igor Komarov is being hailed as the one man who can pull Russia back from the threshold of anarchy, but operatives in London and Washington know Komarov's motives for wanting to be leader of his country are far from pure, and send ex-CIA agent Jason Monk to stop him.
