hollielazor avatar reviewed on + 83 more book reviews

For forty years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russions have a mole-code namend Talbot-inside the CIA.
At first Talbot is suspected of killing European agents. Then a street smart ex-cop uncovers a storm of espionage and murder on the streets of New York, while in a a Long Island suburb a civic demonstration against the Russion mission masks a desperate duel of nerves and wits.
Engineered by Talbot, a shadow world of suspicion and deceit is spilling onto the streets-leading to a new Soviet weapon and a strike war plan threatening the foundations of American government.
For the U.S., time is running out. For Talbot the time is now.
