Description

On the streets of Gdansk, Poland, Will Cochrane waits for a Russian defector bearing a top-secret document. But when the target shows up, so does a team from the Russian foreign intelligence service SVR. Then, in a hail of crossfire, a van speeds into the melee and snatches the defector out from under them all. Everyone wants the man and the codes he carries--but now he's gone, and it's up to Will and his CIA /MI6 team to find him before the Russians do.

Tracking the missing Russian and his kidnappers, Will believes the defector has his own agenda. But soon it's apparent that the real perpetrator is a former East German Stasi officer who instigated a super-secret pact between Russian and U.S. generals almost twenty years ago. An agreement, which if broken, is designed to unleash the world's deadliest assassin.

And when the Russians task their own "spycatcher" to retrieve the document, Will must face two very clever, deadly adversaries who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims.
