'Thrilling, propulsive and terrifying' Simon Sebag MontefioreTHE SECOND NOVEL FROM FORMER CIA OFFICER AND THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ***THE TIMES THRILLER OF THE YEAR*** DAMASCUS STATION ('One of the best spy thrillers in years' THE TIMES)
A daring CIA operation threatens chaos in the Kremlin.

But can Langley trust the Russian at its center?
CIA operatives Sia and Max enter Russia to recruit Vladimir Putin's moneyman. Sia works for a London firm that conceals the wealth of the super-rich. Max's family business in Mexico - a CIA front since the 1960s - is a farm that breeds high-end racehorses. They pose as a couple, and their targets are Vadim, Putin's private banker, and his wife Anna, who is both a banker and an intelligence officer herself...
