She was the bait: Marlene, a beautiful German girl working for the man they called Albatross. Jay Becker was the quarry. Seattle rock musician by night, sailing instructor by day, Jay thought he had gotten lucky: alone with a pretty woman out on Puget Sound in an expensive sloop. But the only kind of luck he had was tough-because Jay Becker was chosen to be a crucial link in a chain of spies carrying the latest US defense weapon to the Soviets. And as soon as Albatross' deadly plan began, American Jay Becker would become a traitor and a marked man - a pawn in international espionage's lethal chess game of deceit and seduction... where one side wins when the other side dies.
A little difficult for me to keep track of the characters because we keep switching between countries and people but pulled together nicely. Good story with plenty of action.
great book. A lot of mystery and suspense.
