The Reluctant Assassin

THE KGB KIDNAPPED HIS DAUGHTER.

THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE HER IS TO BETRAY HIS COUNTRY...

AND START A WORLD WAR.


With the Cold War raging, a Cuban-American West Point graduate is forced to become a sleeper agent for the KGB. His cover name: Atcho.


Atcho's orchestrated rise in Washington DC social circles opens doors into the upper echelons of US National Defense. Doors that Atcho’s KGB handler forces him to enter. But Atcho’s public life clashes with secrets that only he and his tormentor share. He is isolated in a world of intrigue.


And his daughter’s life hangs in the balance.


Torn between revenge and the desire for a normal life, he must navigate a labyrinth of conspiracy, betrayal, and conflicting loyalties. But with each task he is forced to complete, the stakes grow higher.


If he turns the tables against his KGB master, his daughter will die.


If he doesn’t, the world will plunge into a third World War.
