It is 1999 and Russia is on the edge of total implosion.
Social and moral order has collapsed. The only rule is imposed by mafia-like criminal gangs. And a visionary patriot whose voice rises above it all: Igor Komarov.
It is in to this world that former CIA agent Jason Monk is plunged. Drawn out of retirement by the CIA’s desperate bid to halt Komarov’s meteoric rise, he must slip back in to Russia undetected and carry out a covert mission that the world depends on. With Komarov set to win the next election, Monk discovers a secret document that is smuggled in to the British Embassy in Moscow. Named The Black Manifesto, it reveals Komarov’s horrifying and deadly secret agenda.
