The Cold War is over, or so we thought. But are the Russians really our allies now? Or is there something evil bubbling just under the surface? Something is not right - Michael Blackman knows that instinctively. He has been trained as a British government assassin, now retired. Brought back to do \"one more job\", everyone thinks it will be easy in view of his past sucesses. But this time, it's different. It's wrong, the pieces don't fit. And time is running out. He must take action, whatever the consequesnces - and he must do it NOW!
