Chris and Peachy are a little older, in their mid-fifties, when they endow a charitable trust and considerable panic breaks loose worldwide. At the climax of this short novel, Chris has seconds to save someone he cares about, to convince Natalia that she's loved and wanted, a compelling reason not to board Aeroflot to Moscow. "We only live once," he says with an open heart. They're surrounded by hostile agents searching for her. No guarantee of getting out of Warsaw alive. An overwhelming likelihood of capture, relentless interrogation and rendition, unless Cable can sneak three beautiful women out of Chopin Airport -- and one of them is the tall bisexual Russian coder he can't leave behind. "I'll fight for you, defend you with my life," he promises her.

About the Author
Wolf DeVoon is the author of six novels, including two previous adventures with Chris and Peachy, repeatedly challenged to risk their lives in A Portrait of Valor and then tasked to unravel a wave of increasingly grisly serial murders at a Hollywood studio in The Tar Pit. The author is also known for anarcho-capitalist theory (Laissez Faire Law, 2007, and Constitution of Government in Galt's Gulch, 2014), science fiction saga Mars Shall Thunder, and a much admired confession of folly and intransigence, First Feature: A Rake's Progress in Downtown Gomorrah. His 16-chapter futuristic web serial The Good Walk Alone has been published in paperback. One reviewer observed that DeVoon's fictional hero Chris Cable was "a master of sly observations, of the truths hidden in words, not the least bit afraid to ask for that which defies policy and common sense... a big dose of literary fun, that even if played out in today's world, echoes to the time when men were men, and writers weren't afraid to tell stories." (L.B. Johnson) High praise indeed.
