On a cold, bleak day in 1916, all hell breaks loose in a mining pit in the Ural Mountains. Overcome by a strange paranoia, the miners attack one another, savagely and ferociously. Minutes later, two menâ€”a horrified scientist and Grigory Rasputin, trusted confidant of the tsarâ€”hit a detonator, blowing up the mine to conceal all evidence of the carnage.In the present day, FBI agent Sean Reillyâ€™s search for Reed Corrigan, the CIA mindcontrol spook who brainwashed Reillyâ€™s son, takes a backseat to a new, disturbing case. A Russian embassy attachأ© seems to have committed suicide by jumping out of a fourth-floor window in Queens. The apartmentâ€™s owners, a retired physics teacher from Russia and his wife, have gone missing, and further investigation reveals that the former may not be who the FBI believe him to be.Joined by Russian Federal Security Service agent Larisa Tchoumitcheva, Reillyâ€™s investigation of the old manâ€™s identity will uncover a desperate search for a small, mysterious device, with consequences that reach back in time and which, in the wrong hands, could have a devastating impact on the modern world.Packed with the twists, intrigue, and excitement that Khouryâ€™s many fans have come to expect, will keep readers turning pages long into the night.
