Description

Vladimir Valentinovich Alexandrov is a popular and outspoken scientist. On April 1, 1985, Alexandrov disappeared while attending an international scientific conference in Spain. Were this world expert's theories about nuclear winter close enough to a top-secret reality to make MI6, and perhaps even the CIA want to dispose of him? When young KGB officer Ilya Piankoff is charged with investigating the case he learns how desperate and extreme governments can become when the stakes run as high as the possibility of nuclear war...Factual information files follow the main story, including biographies, witness statements and debriefings - these allow the reader to make up their own mind about the event.show more
