In the wake of sanguinary clashes with a ruthless Russian revanchist organization, Harry finds himself an international pariah, wanted for murder by law enforcement, hunted by Russian thugs, and unable any longer to trust the CIA. He is forced to throw his lot in with the Mossad and a beautiful Israeli agent as they draw ever closer to a climactic encounter with Voskreseniye. Along the way another story has been unfolding just beneath the surface, and Harry must unravel the plot within the plot if he is to survive.
