“Hoover’s characters double-deal their way through settings ranging from the Acropolis to the inside of a superplane that skims the edge of space –- the ultimate in death-dealing. A secret agreement between the Russian military and the Yakuza, Japanese crime lords, threatens to shift the balance of world power.”
