Product Description

Product Description

It's a thriller right out of today's headlines, though it took place in the early nineties.

The theft of Soviet nerve gas weapons as the Cold War ends and the fate of a Special Operations helicopter mission to Iran set the stage for a thrill ride across continents as international chicanery gone wild seeks to restore dictatorial rule in the former Soviet republics. Can a disgraced Air Force colonel, a Belarus investigator framed for murder, and a spymaster suddenly left in the cold stop a disaster that will paralyze Washington?

I get the impression that the author did an awful lot of research for this book. Trouble is, he wanted to shovel all of it into one book. His way of achieving this is to keep introducing more and more characters and more detail, which slows down the action until it becomes a very stodgy read imdeed. By the end I couldn't remember who half these people were.

9/20/1991, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, Captain Anatoli Shumakov after a tongue lashing from hire ranking officers he was pondering what next? General Valentin Malmudov handed the Captain a signed invoice (President Mikhail Gorbachev, KGB Vadim Bakatin) stating he was to take charge of the chemical & biological weapons. The Captain is going to call Colonel Kalin to verify that. The phone line did not work. Soldiers were killed & the weapons were taken.

Washington DC, General Philip Ross Wing Patton (Air Force) was about to embark on the campaign of Operation Easy Street. Mostafa Nazari (liaison) wanted to defect to the U.S. President Thornton Giles authorized a clandestine mission to extricate Mostafa & his family. General Patton carefully planned & rehearsed the mission.

General Patton had married the daughter of General Fredrick Parker Strong (Army). Senator Tyler Thrailkill (Pennsylvania) called him late at night to discuss an ongoing contract with Western Aircraft Corporation (XTF–Experimental Tactical Fighter jet) & a trust fund (W.P.). The General called his attorney Walker Holland. Senator Thrailkill continued with his invitation.

Colonel Warren Rodman (Roddy, pilot), Captain Peter Dutch Schuler (copilot) & Tech Sergeant Barry Nickens (flight engineer) were in charge of the MH-53J chopper. Major Mike Hardin (Army, Delta Force) was in charge of the ground force for Operation Easy Street. The chopper was hit by a TOW anti-tank missile.
