Publisher's Summary

In 1987, Alex Konevitch was thrown out of Moscow University for "indulging his entrepreneurial spirit." But by 1991, he was worth $300 million. On track to become Russia's wealthiest man, he makes one critical mistake: he hires the former deputy director of the KGB to handle his corporate security. And then his world begins to fall apart. Kidnapped, beaten, and forced to relinquish his business and his fortune, Alex and his wife escape to the United States, only to be accused by his own government of stealing millions from his business.
With a mob contract out on his life and the FBI hot on his trail, Alex is a desperate man without a country-facing the ultimate sacrifice for the chance to build a new life for himself and his family.

Superb

I just finished this Brian Haig's thriller. I have rarely given a thriller a 5 star, even a good one but this novel definitely got my highest rating. It is author's finest work yet. It is a thriller masterpiece in all aspects: the story is captivating, composition and flow are excellent, research is superb, characters are euthentic, ..oh and the wit, the classic wit of the writer was the greatest sweetner. Moreover, to me, knowing that the story is based on true account just added another dimension to the experience.
And don't get me wrong: I love Sean Drummond, the writer main character in the previous series, and I thought I'd miss this funny fellow in this book. Turned out not as much as I thought.
To me, this novel was gripping, insightful and highly entertaining. Scott Brick, as always, did a masterful job.

Enjoy it.

I hesitated and I was wrong.

I have read most if not all of Brian Haig's books and I looooovvvveee Scott Brick as a narrator so I was planning to buy this when I first saw it in the catalog. Then I read the description and didn't think I was interested. So I moved on. Then I circled back around a time or two until finally one day I bought it without really paying attention.

I'm so glad I did! The story was not what I thought it was going to be; it was so much better. Scott Brick as usual turns in a stellar performance. The plot is compelling, and sadly believable. I wasted a lot of time not reading this book - get it today and see for yourself!
