Book 3 in the "Stealing Thunder" Trilogy
Maverick FBI John Blaine runs down leads, coming to the final confrontation where a frightful and deadly conspiracy could bring two nuclear powers, America and Russia, to the brink of war. All manipulated by a rogue former KGB Colonel who seeks the change the Balance of Power of the East and the West.
Agent John Blaine is now the hunted. Former KGB Colonel Konev presses on the exploding crisis between Japan and America. The Japanese navy, accused of massacring Chinese nationalists on disputed territory, is convicted on TV by the court of public opinion. If President Adams abandons the Mutual Defense Treaty with Japan, then he is surrendering all of Asia into China's sphere of influence. Adams must consider using nuclear weapons to defend Japan. Unthinkable for the Japanese and the only option for China, this war would leave Russia as the surviving superpower. This has been Konev's plan all along.
The massacre has thrust Chinese Communist hardliners into the forefront. They will come to America and negotiate Japan's reparations. Politically, Japan almost becomes a vassal to Beijing.
Blaine discovers a crack in Konev's grand conspiracy - a sliver which will expose China's warmongers to their own reformers. But is it a risk that the President is willing to take?
