The Right Hand
By Derek Haas
From a star Hollywood screenwriter comes a thrilling contemporary take on a cold war classic - the most secret side of the CIA and a mission in Russia which puts the balance of power in jeopardy.
Theft. Kidnap. Assassination.
There are some acts no government can sanction. There are some things all politicians must deny. Sometimes the left hand cannot know what the right hand is doing.
Austin Clay is that right hand.
His latest task: to track down a fellow CIA operative who has gone missing near Moscow. But nothing is what it seems, and soon Clay finds himself on a race against time and across a continent, on the hunt for a traitor...
