Description

A hideaway lake in the mountains above Los Angeles. A reclusive bachelor. A woman journalist on the run with a mystery boy...just a step ahead of a pair of hired killers. These are the initial ingredients of this full-throttle, nonstop chase thriller, which accelerates from the opening pages to its breathtaking finale. Eight-year-old Andrei "Andy" Morozov possesses a secret that could bring down the new Russian president, a media darling who conceals imperial ambitions. With geopolitical stakes this high, a secret directive is given--the boy must be hunted down and silenced forever. Thus, from the heart-pounding opening sequence, the thrilling helter-skelter race is on. Yet, as we see in vivid flashback, this is only the deadly home stretch of a six-months' pursuit that began explosively in Moscow and has careened across Europe and America to reach its lethal climax amid the neon dazzle of the Russian neighborhoods of West Hollywood.
