Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804114447, Mass Market Paperback)"[AN] EXCELLENT THRILLER . . . Will keep readers tied up with its clever twists and sleek styling."
When Jennifer Morelli disappears, Colin Burke, the disillusioned editor of The Washington Tribune, suspects foul play. After all, the eager young reporter insisted that she had stumbled onto a story too hot to handle in St. Petersburg.
So Burke returns to Russia--where he had put in long, hard years as a reporter--and tries to piece together the story that Morelli uncovered. And as he gropes through the dark, seedy maze of Russian politics, he suspects that the Hermitage, a place of pure beauty filled with the world's most breathtaking art, is at the center of the dark scandal Morelli was about to expose. Yet what Burke discovers blows all his expectations out of the water: a crisis that could explode the fragile Russian government. . . .
"Richly detailed and relentlessly suspenseful, Dispatch is a real page-turner."
