Brian Haig is a West Point graduate and a career military strategist. Before retiring from the Army, he served as special assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. His articles have been published in journals ranging from the New York Times to USA Today. The son of former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, he lives in New Jersey with his wife and four children.
New York Times best-selling author Haig (www.brianhaig.com) follows up his sixth Sean Drummond novel, Man in the Middle (2007), with this tense thriller inspired by a true story and reminiscent of Tom Clancy's early work. It's 1991, the Soviet Union has fallen, and entrepreneurial young Russian Alex Konevitch quickly embraces capitalism, raking in a cool $300 million. He becomes a major donor to Russia's first democratically elected president and, unbeknownst to him, the number one target of the former KGB, which wants his money, his companies, and some payback for its fall from power. Audie Award winner Scott Brick's (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) narration is masterly; he is especially adept at the Russian accents. Highly recommended for adventure/thriller/mystery fans.-Scott R. DiMarco, Mansfield Univ. of Pennsylvania Lib. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
