Joel C. Rosenberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Kremlin Conspiracy, delivers a new international thriller about a terrifying nuclear alliance among Russia, Iran, and North Korea, and the man who must stop their deadly strategy.
Former U.S. Secret Service agent Marcus Ryker is shot out of the air over enemy territory in the middle of the greatest international crisis since the end of the Cold War. Now he is facing an impossible task. He must evade detection and capture by Russian special forces while somehow convincing his own government to grant safe harbor to the one man responsible for the global mayhem, Russian double agent and assassin Oleg Kraskin.
While he frantically negotiates with his contacts in the White House, Marcus discovers that the unstable North Korean regime plans to use the international chaos as cover while they sell nuclear weapons to Iran. The fate of the entire free world is on the line, leading Marcus to make a deal with the U.s. government. He will go back to work as an international operative and track down WMDs before they end up in the hands of those with determination and the means to use them. Marcus and Oleg worked together before to stop a world war. Can they work together again to stop world destruction?
