New York Times-bestselling author Brian Haig delivers a thriller inspired by a true story about one man running between two countries, trying desperately to escape his past. In 1987, Alex Konevitch was thrown out of Moscow University for "indulging his entrepreneurial spirit." But by 1991, he was worth $300 million. On track to become Russia's wealthiest man, he makes one critical mistake: he hires the former deputy director of the KGB to handle his corporate security. And then his world begins to fall apart. Kidnapped, beaten, and forced to relinquish his business and his fortune, Alex and his wife escape to the United States, only to be accused by his own government of stealing millions from his business. With a mob contract out on his life and the FBI hot on his trail, Alex is a desperate man without a country-facing the ultimate sacrifice for the chance to build a new life for himself and his family.

"Alex Konevitch made a lot of money in the Russian construction business by working hard and making smart decisions. But he also made some enemies along the way, which becomes exceedingly clear when a KGB higher-up steals his company and his wealth and frames him for several crimes. Fleeing with his wife to the U.S., Alex struggles amid these false accusations -- and the hard-earned knowledge that his new homeland is just as rife with corruption as his old one. Based on a true story, this fast-paced thriller will appeal to readers who enjoy tales of government-sanctioned victimisation." Thrillers and Suspense June 2014 newsletter
