"In 1980 an American B-52 bomber transporting a top-secret weapon crashes high on the peaks of a remote mountain range on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. Nearly thirty years later, deep in the unforgiving, Taliban-controlled Lashkar Province of Afghanistan, Dr. Jonathan Ransom is making amends for the violence in his past. The woman he married, Emma Ransom, a.k.a. Lara Antonova, is in fact a spy and an assassin who used his job with Doctors without Borders as her cover story. Now she is missing--most likely in the hands of a charismatic and violent arms dealer who goes by the name Lord Balfour. Emma is also being hunted by two conflicting shadow agencies--Division in the U.S. and the FSB in Russia..."--Dust jacket flap.

This action thriller stretches credibility at times when a civilian doctor becomes a spymaster after a few lessons. The novel's premise, a nuclear warhead is buried in a mountainside, is real enough to be scary. As the Americans race to reclaim the warhead from an international arms dealer, the reader catches a glimpse of inter-agency warfare among various groups and nationalities. This is the book for readers who desire non-stop plot and little characterization.

A great spy, double-spy, innocent layman turn spy story. Great performance by the actor on the audio CD versioin of the book (he did at least 6 different accents, and do both male and female dialogues well!) Highly recommended!

This novel is much better than I expected it would be. Some very good action and well conceived plots. 8 of 10 stars
