Andrew Kaplan's former CIA agent, Scorpion, is out to prevent the Cold War from erupting into a full fledged conflagration between Russia and the United States and her NATO allies in his latest work, "Scorpion Winter." (Harper/404 pages)
Scorpion is persuaded to prevent the assassination of the pro-Russian
candidate for the presidency of the Ukraine. When his attempts fail, Scorpion and his girlfriend, Iryna, are framed for the assassination.
As the two superpowers ponder an all out conflict, Scorpion is on a race against time to find the party responsible for the killing. The hunt for the real assassin takes him inside the radioactive zone of the Chernobyl nuclear accident.
In this third episode of the popular Scorpion series, Kaplan's intrepid agent
delivers plenty of action, and Krav Maga defensive moves against an army
of agents who would deliver the world into the throes of World War III.
