About the Book

Wall Street financier and friend of the president, Victor Lohr, is abducted in front of his Gramercy Park row house by terrorists demanding the release of political prisoners. Judson Munro, former FBI agent and corporate crisis advisor, is hired by Lohr's company to negotiate his release. Unknown to the terrorists, the FBI, or Munro, Victor Lohr is a covert illegal agent of the GRU, Russian Army Intelligence.

In order for Lohr to carry out an eminent secret mission the GRU, through its Cuban intelligence contacts, frees Lohr through a brutal but clever ruse. Munro doubts Lohr's story of his escape, and, in pursuing the truth, he uncovers Lohr's secret mission. In a tense confrontation with GRU officers ordered to remove Munro, he faces the reality of his impending death.
