The Red Horseman

by Stephen Coonts (Author)


As the infrastructure of the Soviet Union crumbles before the world's eyes, twenty thousand tactical nuclear weapons, once under the command of the Soviet military, are up for grabs - and US intelligence believes they may soon appear on the open market. Jake Grafton is despatched to Moscow to ensure that the weapons are destroyed before they disappear into a terrorist pipeline. But Grafton discovers that unidentified American officials want his mission to fail - and will go to any lengths to stop him. Meanwhile, off the coast of the Canary Islands, the body of a British billionaire has been found floating in the sea. Grafton's contacts tell him the man was a victim of a hit squad from within the CIA. And before long, Grafton realises he too has been targeted for assassination - and the conspiracy is clearly stamped 'made in America'...
