Ex-CIA agent Kirk McGarvey must bring down Yevgenni Anatolevich Tarankov, the Tarantula, if the new Russia, which is on the path to an open and free society, is not to become the old Russia

Blackwell North Amer
Russia is in chaos. The country, the government, the nation's infrastructure, the people, and its institutions have all failed to make the transition to a prosperous democracy. Many people are in favor of turning back the clock, to a time when life's choices were simpler. When powerful men ruled with an iron hand, you could count on them to keep starvation away. Yevgenni Anatolevich Tarankov, known as the tarantula, is such a man.
So if Russia is to survive in the family of nations, and continue on the path to an open and free society, then one man must be killed. The tarantula must die before he leads the second most powerful country on earth back into the dark ages. All that is needed is an assassin.
Ex-CIA officer Kirk McGarvey may be the only man who can pull it off. But Tarankov's old KGB connections manage to ferret McGarvey out, and he soon finds himself running for his life amidst the turmoil of the new Russia. He knows that any chance for Russian democracy may rest on his shoulders - and on the bullet that has the tarantula's name written on it.
