In this Cold War thriller, CIA operative Jim Gadsden struggles to prove he is not washed up while he works against the clock to save the Pacific Northwest from atomic annihilation. From Singapore to D.C. to Idaho and beyond, Gadsden battles traitors, the elements, and the limits of human endurance with grit and determination. But all the wit and strength in the world may not be enough to protect him from betrayal by elements within the very system he is meant to protect. Written with an insider’s knowledge of Military Intelligence, this updated edition of John R. Reed’s first novel is a wild, unpredictable ride from start to finish.
