The fifth title in the popular Detective Craig Rylander Mystery Series - A basketball-sized chunk of the heavy metal Plutonium rises to the earth's surface on the northern Siberian plain. First to discover its presence, Monica Skrabacz, head of the Russian Desk at the CIA, and former 15-year field operative, immediately fears two things: in the hands of terrorists, there's enough Plutonium to produce several hundred dirty suitcase bombs; and Monica knows from experience that securing it through government channels will create a bureaucratic nightmare, taking far too long and leaving it vulnerable to both terrorists and rogue, nationalist despots seeking the bomb. Going off the grid, she secretly enlists the aid of an obscure, international problem-solving team she's worked with in the past . . . this time to protect the world from a nuclear holocaust. Will Monica's secret team be able to secure the radioactive mass before the terrorist groups or the nationalist despots? Who will get there first? And what will happen to the 5,000 pounds of Plutonium? The race is on!
