Description

In this riveting and emotionally powerful historical drama, an ex-FBI agent plunges into the darkest shadows of 1930s Europe, where everything he loves is on the line . . . International consultant Prescott Sweets mission is to bring justice to countries suffering from Americas imperialistic interventions. With his outspoken artist wife, Loretta, and their two children, he lives a life of equality and continental elegance amid Europes glittering capitalsbeyond anything he ever dared hope for. But he is still a man in hiding, from his past with the Bureau, from British Intelligenceand from his own tempting, dangerous skill at high-level espionage. So when he has the opportunity to live in Moscow and work at the American Embassy, Prescott and his family seize the chance to take refuge and at last put down roots in what they believe is a fair society. Life in Russia, however, proves to be a beautiful lie. Reduced to bare survival, with his son gravely ill, Prescott calls on all his skills in a last-ditch effort to free his family from the grips of Stalin. But between honor and expediency, salvation and atrocity, hell be forced to play an ever more merciless hand and commit unimaginable acts for a future that promises nowhere to run . . .
