New York Times Bestseller and New York Times Notable Book
With the Cold War fought and won, British spymaster Tim Cranmer accepts early retirement to rural England and a new life with his alluring young mistress, Emma. But when both Emma and Cranmer’s star double agent and lifelong rival Larry Pettifer disappear, Cranmer is suddenly on the run. In a frantic journey across Europe and into the lawless, battered landscapes of Moscow and southern Russia, he searches for his brilliant protégé while desperately eluding his former colleagues, in order to save whatever of his life he has left.
