In the far reaches of the Northern Military District, a Russian general is trying to keep his underpaid and under-equipped forces intact. To do this, he is reconfiguring tactical nuclear warheads and selling them on a cash-and-carry basis. And America's newest adversary, the Islamic extremists, desperately want them. The CIA has indications, but no proof that this is taking place. The proof America needs is in the hands of a well-placed agent in this same general's forces. That agent has gone silent. In order to reestablish contact, a team of Navy SEALs trained in winter warfare is sent secretly into northern Russia - to the frigid Kola Peninsula. And that team is headed by none other than John Moody.

Retro Military Thriller
Not action packed, but kept my interest throughout. I would liken it to The Dogs of War in that it is a very detailed narrative leading up to a final operation. From the description and cover photo I was expecting the book to be set in modern times, that was my fault for not doing more research.
It also reminded me of Tom Clancy's pre "campus" novels in some aspects. If you changed the names of some of the characters to Chavez, Clark, and Ryan you would have a familiar style thriller set during the end of the Cold War.
Overall I enjoyed the book, though I wish there was a little more action or espionage. The narrator was ok, I found his Russian accents a little annoying. This is a solid book I would recommend to Clancy fans or those looking for a retro thriller.
