    Really smart, fast paced read. Fascinating topic.

    I've read Mr. Beecher's other books. I always anticipate the next one and hope there is another in the works. This is a really great read. You can tell he knows what he's talking about which makes the story really interesting and thought provoking. Highly recommend it!

    Fast-paced thriller

    Fast-paced thriller, heavy on suspense and intrique. Although a fictional novel, it is chock-full of little known facts about Soviet covert actions against the US during the Cold War. Hard to put down until the surprising conclusion...
