Présentation de l'éditeur
High above a mountainside in Austria, a Soviet citizen with an American-sounding name sails beneath a hang glider, taking one more daring risk in a life full of risks. What Marcus Jolly doesn’t know is that an old man in Siberia—facing his moment of death—has called on him for the most dangerous mission of his career.
In Washington, a man named Taras Arensky—one of the most highly trained killers in the world—is called to the White House to take on an extraordinary mission: protect the Soviet president from assassination.
Once Taras Arensky and Marcus Jolly had been the best of friends. Now they are to meet again on the moonlit cliffs of Yalta, at the Soviet President’s summer retreat. It is the opening move of a duel that will be fought across Europe, enmeshing a beautiful woman and climaxing at an international summit in Potsdam. It will call on all the deadly skills and cunning the two men have acquired over a lifetime.
Taking its place beside the best in action fiction, Duel of Assassins captures a world of shifting loyalties and boundaries, and two unforgettable modern-day warriors who live or die by their own code of honor.
