Publisher's Summary

For 40 years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole - code-named Talbot - inside the CIA. At first Talbot is suspected of killing European agents. Then a street-smart ex-cop uncovers a storm of espionage and murder on the streets of New York, while in a Long Island suburb a civic demonstration against the Russian mission masks a desperate duel of nerves and wits.
Engineered by Talbot, a shadow world of suspicion and deceit is spilling onto the streets - leading to a new Soviet weapon and a first-strike war plan threatening the foundations of American government.
For the U.S., time is running out. For Talbot, the time is now.

Enjoyed

I liked this book, I like almost everything Nelson DeMille writes and Scott Brick narrates. I always listen to unabridged when available and the only minor issue I had with this book is given its length at times I had to go back and listen to a parts again. My issue I suspect.

As always great book and great narrator!

13 in a dozen

How a good writer like DeMille can start off a terrific book and then convert to a plot which can be found in 99% of cheap thrill books is unclear to me.
A former NY cop, some old farts and his rich girlfriend save the world from total destruction within the last minute .... throughout the book I feared such an outcome but then I though DeMille might surprise us ... he didn't ... all in all great writer, boring story 13 in a dozen plots.... very dissapointed
