Wrapping up his latest assignment for the Magellan Billet, Luke Daniels receives a surprise visit from the head of a former-CIA operation named Sommerhaus -- a failed attempt to assemble an espionage network within the Ukraine on the eve of the Russian invasion. Sommerhaus ranks high on Luke's list of painful regrets for it was during this mission that his friend, CIA case officer John Vince, was captured by Russian operatives and supposedly executed. But Luke is provided some shocking news. Vince is alive, in failing health, locked behind the walls of Russia's brutal Solovetsky Island prison, and has a critical message he'll give to no one but Luke. Needing no further convincing Luke vows to bring Vince home. However, just as he manages to extract his friend from prison Vince tragically dies and his final words are rambling and incoherent. Just bits and pieces. But enough to plunge Luke into a hunt for something lost since the 15th century. The legendary library of the first Tsar of All Russia, Ivan the Terrible. Within that priceless collection of rare manuscripts is the key to unraveling a modern-day cipher and stopping a secret Soviet satellite program that still exists. But Luke is not the only one on the trail. Others, both inside and out of Russia, want the library for a totally different reason -- to re-start the Red Star program and finally unleash its destructive potential. Luke's mission is clear. Find the lost library, solve the puzzle, and prevent Red Star falling.… (mere)

What a lesson in Russian history, megalomaniacs mostly of the Russian variety, oligarchs and the horrors of a few misplaced nuclear weapons. Luke Daniels is back in action and he is the closet thing to Superman that we have. Army Ranger once and always, “well trained and cool under fire” he is partnering with a woman who was a former Russian agent to find and liberate an American operative who has been captured and imprisoned in one the worst of the Gulag prisons . But there are other forces at work who are plotting and scheming and the two groups are running parallel paths which are about to veer and collide searching for the same prize for very different reasons.

To say that this story and the situational details are unbelievable would be a gross understatement. But that is probably what makes it all so possible and I never doubt what various government agencies are capable of. There is a death a minute, a chase an hour and the players keep changing sides. From St. Petersburg to Siberia, Finland and back again you just know there are going to be many hold your breath minutes.

I admit to missing Pappy but no doubt it was time for Luke Daniels to step out on his own adventure. Thanks to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for a copy. ( )

But there was still that crap.

Determined to rescue the partner he’d left behind Luke Daniels finds himself embroiled in a situation way bigger than anything he’s ever faced before in this action packed adventure that also doubles as a in depth history lesson of the former USSR. I can guarantee you’ll never look up at the sky the same way again after reading this! ( )
