The story was well written and packed a great deal into a very small time frame. It was interesting to consider this story as a "what if" scenario of what was happening toward the end of the Cold War. Could this really have happened?
The characters in this story were intriguing. I found myself journeying right now to Tracie and Shane as they traveled from Maine to D.C. while being pursued by members of the KGB.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading more of Mr. Leverone's work.

It’s late in the Cold War, and the Soviet Union is slowly disintegrating. In the midst of this uncertainty and upheaval, a mysterious group of KGB officials has concocted a desperate plan in an attempt to maintain power. And one beautiful young CIA operative is all that stands between this shadowy cabal and the outbreak of World War Three. Spring, 1987. CIA Special Operations agent Tracie Tanner is tasked with what should be a relatively straightforward mission: deliver a secret communique from Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to U.S. President Ronald Reagan. After smuggling the document out of East Germany, Tracie believes she is in the clear. She's wrong. There are shadowy forces at work, influential people who will stop at nothing to prevent the explosive information contained in the letter from reaching the White House. Soon, Tanner is knee-deep in airplane crashes and murder, paired up with a young Maine air traffic controller and on the run for their lives, unsure who she can trust at CIA, but committed to completing her mission, no matter the cost.
