"And to my dearly beloved and only son, Captain Adam Scott, I bequeath...the enclosed envelope, which I can only hope will bring him greater happiness that it did me. Should he decide to open the envelope, it must be on the condition that he will never divulge its contents to any other living person"
As Adam listens to the final bequest of his father's will, he knows he will at last learn the unspoken secret that shadowed the peaceful retirement of Colonel Scott and turned him from a World War II hero into a disgraced and broken man.
But inside the yellowed envelope Adam finds a far more important secret.
The path Adam has to follow leads him first to the innermost vault of a Swiss bank where his real inheritance lies--a priceless work of Russian art, a 14th-century icon, smuggled out of Russia by the last Czar and subsequently passed into the hands of a Nazi war criminal by a bizarre twist of fate. In following the path to clear his father's name, Adam has stumbled upon a revelation so explosive that it could forever change the balance of power between American and the Soviet Union.

When his father dies, Capt. Adam Scott inherits an envelope. According to the terms of his father's will, he may choose not to open it but "should he decide to open the envelope, it must be on the condition that he will never divulge its contents to any other living person." Adam realizes that the envelope must contain the secret that led his WWII hero father into public disgrace and dishonor.
He opens the envelope and begins to unravel its secrets. Suddenly he's being pursued by the KGB. The defense strategy of the USA is in danger of becoming a pawn to Russia's plan to take over. An imaginative story, building suspense, surprising plot twists and lively writing make this a page-turner. If you like John Le Carre and Robert Ludlum's books, you should love this one.
