A novel by

"Bart Davis is a rare talent...His novels are extraordinary." - Gerry Carroll, author of North SAR



In a dacha outside Moscow, Vladmir Malenkov, the leader of the Soviet Union, lies near death, his frail body hooked up to every imaginable life-sustaining device...and to a computer more advanced and powerful than the world has ever known.


Behind the walls of the Soviet Defense Ministry, the generals plan to seize control of the government - and to threaten a devastating nuclear strike against the United States.


When journalist Alexi Petrov's scientist brother dies in his arms, his last breath an apocalyptic warning, Petrov is forced to confront the conspiracy - and quickly discovers its deadly implications. Unless he can reach Malenkov in time - before the computer programmed to protect him can be subverted - Russia may be doomed to nuclear winter...and the earth to perish.
