Finn is a veteran MI6 operative stationed in Moscow. In the guise of an amiable trade secretary, he has penetrated deep into the dangerous labyrinth that is Russia under Vladimir Putin to discover some of its darkest secrets, thanks to a high-level source deep within the Kremlin.
The youngest female colonel in the KGB, Anna is the ambitious daughter of one of the former Soviet Union's elite espionage families. Charged with helping to make Russia strong again under Putin, she is ordered to spy on Finn and discover the identity of his mole.
At the dawn of the new millennium, these adver-saries find themselves brought together by an unex-pected love that becomes the only truth they can trust. When Finn uncovers a shocking and ingenious plan—hatched in the depths of the Cold War—to control the European continent and shift the balance of world power, he and Anna are thrust into a deadly plot in which friend and foe wear the same face. With time running out, they will race across Europe and risk every-thing—career, reputation, and even their own lives—to expose the terrifying truth.

This love story is disguised as a spy story, or vice versa. A little slow to take off, the novel does get interesting after a few chapters. British narrator Anne Flosnik keeps the listener involved as she smoothly portrays Russian and British spymasters, with all their vocal nuances. Finn is a British spy; Anna, a Russian spy. They use each other in every sense of the word and somehow fall in love. Author Dryden (his name is reportedly a pseudonym for a British journalist) writes a credible book about the spy's life: mostly dull reports, speculation, and trying to please the bosses, who often don't want the truth. It all sounds real. M.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
