The Cold War. A backdrop to betrayal. A playground for spies.
A renegade general mobilizes to overthrow the Russian regime and gain control of his country's military arsenal.
The world is on the brink of war.
To stop him, the US president sends covert operator Atcho deep inside Siberia. Failure could spell nuclear annihilation - and a relentless investigative reporter pursues Atcho, certain that he is the shooter in an assassination attempt.
Worse yet, Atcho's beautiful fiancée, a former CIA operative, goes rogue to save him.
If you love Reacher, Bourne, and Smiley, you’ll love this international espionage thriller because Atcho is a relentless hero who fights hardest when the chips are down, bleeds when cut, and is his own man. Don't miss this nail biter that Carmine Zozzora, producer of Die Hard with Vengeance calls, "Pure Gold."
