A new U.S. president is about to be inaugurated, and the incoming administration has disbanded the Magellan Billet agency and fired its head. But director Stephanie Nelle has one last mission for the unit and Cotton Malone: to track down a dangerous former KGB agent still clinging to the old ideals. What seems like a simple reconnaissance mission uncovers dormant secrets from the Cold War and a constitutional loophole that threaten the very foundation of the American government.
VERDICT Once again, Berry (The Patriot Threat) mixes history and suspense in a high-energy, action-packed thriller. Fans will not be disappointed as he delivers another complex story highlighted by Malone's superhuman ability to survive anything and chase the bad guys to the ends of the earth.
