Kept forgetting to return this book to Network Nirvana after bringing it home for covering.

From back cover:
"Frank Pagan is a policeman in disgrace.

Which is why, reduced to a sort of odd-job security man, he is escorting a not-very-important Russian official on a not-very-important trip to Edinburgh.

Where his career prospects take a turn for the worse when his Russian is assassinated - shot at point-blank range - on Waverley station.

But as he begins to pick up the pieces, the trail leads back to the Baltic emigre community, to the United States and then into the heart of the Soviet Union itself.

It is when the beautiful Kristina walks into his weary life that the facts begin to fall into place and Frank Pagan realises that he is engaged in a desperate race to untangle a conspiracy that threatens to have devastating worldwide effects . . ."


Book has been neatly covered to protect it on its journey, with a 'Travelling Book' sticker on the front.

Now I've read it, and enjoyed it, although not the storyline, which seemed uncomfortably like fact, rather than fiction.

Thankfully, not so many Russian names to be totally confusing, and given places against where the action was, certainly helped.

Brought to mind many people I've know in the past from Tallinn and Lithuania, and I wonder where they are now, and what they would think of this book.

Here's hoping future readers enjoy it.
