In the frozen wastes of Siberia, a silver artifact is stolen from a dead man . . . In the Middle East, the carefully planned strike on a terrorist leader goes disastrously wrong . . . Two seemingly unrelated incidents have placed the former CIA covert operative-turned-freelance spy, code-named Scorpion, in a desperate position: joining forces with a beautiful woman to prevent the assassination of a powerful Eastern European politician. But treachery breeds terror in the long shadow of a dangerous power play, as Scorpion finds himself caught in a lethal trap sprung by an unknown enemy.

Says Suspense Magazine: "I was ready for a thrill ride and I wasn’t disappointed. Kaplan delivers. I definitely want more Kaplan." Look for it at your local bookstore or online.
