The irreverent, hard-charging, Canadian spy thriller, out-of-print for over 45 years, and never released in the United States…until now.
It’s 1975. Aleksey Nikolayevich Kosygin, the Soviet premier, is heading to Vancouver on a State visit and the KGB is convinced that he’s targeted for assassination by a local Latvian dissident, Rudolphe Henke. So the Royal Mounted Police offer Tom Shaver, a disgraced corporal, an off-the-record way to redeem himself: kidnap Henke and hold him for the duration of the state visit. Shaver takes the assignment…only to discover that Henke has disappeared. Now Shaver, hiding his failure from his bosses, has to find Henke fast…while evading a professional hitman from the United States and battling a deadly conspiracy that could change the global balance of power.
The book was adapted into the 1975 spy thriller Russian Roulette starring George Segal and written by Tom Ardies.
