The Hydra Affairby David Roberts
After a nearly fatal ambush in a Miami back alley, CIA analyst Andrew Wiley knows he needs help in his race against the clock. Wrongfully accused of espionage, Wiley is desperately struggling to elude a nationwide dragnet while targeting Alexander Volkov, the brilliant ex-KGB agent who is about to launch a catastrophic terror attack inside the United States. To avoid capture and stop the Russian, Wiley needs his skills to be razor-sharp ... but he fears that his judgment is clouded by his personal agenda. Seven years ago, the sociopathic Volkov, also known as "The Wolf," sadistically murdered Wiley's wife. With time running out, Wiley enlists an ambitious Miami Herald reporter, though he knows she holds a grudge against him and may play him for a career-making headline. Their efforts uncover Volkov's plan, and Wiley devises a daring Hail Mary attempt to thwart the Russian - but is it already too late? Alternating between Wiley's and Volkov's viewpoints, The Hydra Affair brings us a complex protagonist forged in the crucible of adversity, and an equally mesmerizing villain, who, despite his amorality and evil intent, displays flashes of humanity. As Volkov and Wiley are propelled toward the shattering climax, in which both will put their lives on the line in the ultimate battle of wills, you will be on the edge of your seat to witness the ultimate victory of redemption ... for one of them. Crafted with high-octane action, thoughtful character development, and splashes of humor, this 2010 Colorado Gold Writing Contest finalist is a page-turner that both men and women will enjoy.
