At thirty two, Dr. Caroline Glyn, the former Mrs. Griffith is an authority on malignant cells and a driving force behind the most interesting research project of the moment. Carving up hairy creatures in Washington DC in her hunt for cancer-causing genes is a daily routine. Her husband and brilliant co-researcher who recently died of a mysterious brain tumor has left her alone with their beloved raven haired daughter Mary. Leaving Mary at kindergarten, she meets Mary's new friend Krupskaya whose fine features momentarily stun Caroline who stares in utter disbelief as a freak wind rustles the kids black hair. The girl could have been Mary; the two girls were like two peas in a pot. The old man leading Krupskaya awkwardly up the kindergarten path that morning causes the child to walk lop-sided in his powerful grip. Unknown to Caroline and the rest of the world, Aleksei Ivanovich is an ancient warhorse from the cold war and a confidant of Stalin; a man as depraved as they come. The old unsmiling face reminds Dr. Caroline Glyn of her late father and she is cordial towards this luckless stranger. Little does she know that this meeting has been long in the planning. The brutal events that follow this morning, turn the life of Dr. Caroline Glyn and her daughter to surreal anguish. With their lives in the balance after an near supernatural occurrence, the mother in her agitated state must use the only weapon she has to triumph over an old powerful organization; a brilliant mind that is now oddly clouded by posttraumatic stress. From the Anacostia Asylum for the Criminally Insane to socialite dinner parties in Georgetown, her ruthless quest causes consternation by security agencies and a flurry of White House briefings. You don't put this book down, so make time for a thrilling more
