A series of apparently unconnected events leads trouble-shooter Paul Richter to Moscow, where his old adversary Viktor Bykov needs his help. The Russian government has a problem. They're calling it `inventory errors', but the truth is that someone's been stealing their MiG-25 Foxbats, and they've no idea who, or why.
On the other side of the world, alarm bells ring in the USA when North Korea launches an intercontinental ballistic missile. But it's only when the Americans begin to mobilise their forces that the full extent of the threat becomes clear.
And Richter finds himself back in the pilot's seat of a Harrier over North Korea, fighting his way past surface-to-air missiles and dodging supersonic interceptors to complete his mission before Seoul is destroyed by a devastating chemical weapon attack.
James Barrington, who himself worked in covert operations, is swiftly building a reputation and following as a writer of high-class, authentic, UK-based espionage thrillers.
