In May 1919, mere months after the guns of World War I had fallen silent, the Russian Revolution was roaring and the Bolsheviks' Red Army had begun to take the upper hand against the U.S. and British-backed White Army. Paul Dukes-a 30-year-old concert pianist and master of disguise dubbed "the Man with a Hundred Faces," and the only English spy in Russia-was cut off in Petrograd after infiltrating the Bolshevik government and stealing top secret information.
With the government in London desperately in need of the documents in Dukes' possession and the Bolshevik secret police closing in, a seemingly suicidal plan was hatched to rescue Dukes. Written by a former MI6 officer in the tradition of Agent Zigzag, Operation, Kronstadt is a riveting page-turner.
