Présentation de l'éditeur
Former Canadian military officer David Baird, now an up-and-coming singer in Britain, is invited to perform at a reception in the Soviet Embassy.
Approached by British Intelligence to ‘keep his eyes and ears open’ while he deals with the Soviets, Baird thinks there’s nothing to it.
But when he stumbles upon a plot to sabotage Britain’s development of a top-secret vertical-take-off jet fighter, he finds himself plunged into a dark world of secrets, murder and espionage.
A beautiful Soviet agent with dark, degrading secrets, a KGB assassin, a Soviet cruise ship heading for Odessa with a mysterious cargo, and a smooth-talking Soviet cultural attaché who is more than his title suggests – Baird discovers that by fighting monsters there is a danger of becoming one.
The terrifying dual climax takes place in the skies over the North Atlantic, and in a secret Soviet safe house used for both for interrogation and depraved sex-sting operations.
In over his head, and afraid for his life, David must decide how far he is willing to go in order to foil the Soviets’ plans and protect those he holds most dear.
With his Debut as a Spy Baird’s life will be changed forever…
