It started as a simple spy hunt. It became a desperate battle to save the West.

For forty years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole—code-named Talbot—inside the CIA. At first Talbot is suspected of killing European agents. Then a street-smart ex-cop uncovers a storm of espionage and murder on the streets of New York, while in a Long Island suburb a civic demonstration against the Russian mission masks a desperate duel of nerves and wits.

Engineered by Talbot, a shadow world of suspicion and deceit is spilling onto the streets — leading to a new Soviet weapon and a first-strike war plan threatening the foundations of American government.

For the US, time is running out. For Talbot, the time is now.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Loaded with spies, sex, suspense, and enough shooting to make the goings-on at the O.K. Corral look like a water-pistol fight.”


  • “Will keep the reader’s adrenaline flowing full blast from beginning to end…[DeMille] has taken an imaginative and complicated plot and very skillfully made it sound plausible—and chilling.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

    " This was a really really good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Benjamin | 2/13/2014

    " To me this book was a dry at times and fast paced at other. Great character development, story line, and plot. I figured out most of what was going on in the book when the author dropped the Odyssey hint. I have read better and faster pace Russian Spy Novels. Not one of favorite Nelson Demille book,but the author is really good writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Karla | 2/8/2014

    " Quite a complex, clandestine tale that I had a hard time following at times. Still, there were some interesting theories and was not disappointed with Nelson DeMilles entertaining descriptions of the action and character interactions. Not his best by far tho. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Bob Copley | 2/3/2014

    " I did not finish this book. It is the only DeMille book that I did not like and the only book that I have not finished in a long time. "
