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.

"Masterful...All the loose ends tie together in a grand and glorious finale...Enthralling." -- San Diego Union

"The writing is ebulient, the author has a good time with the conventions, and so should the reader." -- The New York Times

I agree with the above, a thoroughly enjoyable read. Paul C.
