A New York Times Notable Book of the Year “It was going to be a busy day. The Russians were committing news.” American journalist Colin Burke may have been in Moscow long enough to lose his naiveté, but he’s still got his reporter’s ambition for that One Big Story--the one that will run on the front page above the fold. After all, something’s got to justify the years he’s spent living in a grim Soviet flat with an iffy supply of hot water and working with a rotating roster of “assistants” who report his every move to the KGB. Burke’s an old pro, much too savvy--or so he thinks--to be manipulated by government officials out to use the press for their own ends. But when a source presents him with the story of a lifetime, his ambition could prove fatal. It blinds Burke to the fact that he’s got only part of the story--a story that stretches to the Kremlinand the White House. He knows just enough to make some powerful, dangerous people extremely uncomfortable. But can he learn the rest of the story in time to save his own skin?
