Moscow at MidnightPaperback - 2017 | English language edition.
Downsized by the CIA, Max Rushmore is re-hired by a private contractor--operating on a tightened budget in a world of ratcheting tensions--to return to Moscow and investigate the death of a beautiful nuclear waste disposal expert. But Max, whose non-transferable skills include never having met a Russian he couldn't drink under the table, soon uncovers all sorts of inconsistencies: could it be that she is not dead at all? So begins a game of cat-and-mouse that takes the agent across Russia as he follows his only clue: a rare Siberian diamond. With all the breathless tension of classic espionage novels, Moscow at Midnight is both humorous and utterly enthralling--a fast-paced page-turner of the old school.
