A Warsaw Pact
Descrição da editora
On the eve of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Catherine Johnson is working undercover in Russia’s Warsaw embassy. A US Army major, she completes her twenty, moves to Russia, adopts a Russian girl, and marries a Russian general. Obviously she is an American spy. The Russians know she is a spy. Everyone knows she is a spy. No one cares. Their concern is the planned invasion.
Besides taking her seven year old daughter to ballet practice and running the embassy in Warsaw, Catherine digs deep into the Ryniak family. The men are politically connected. The wife, Marta, runs a social media company heavily into anti-Russian propaganda. Catherine and Marta become close. They travel together to the Russian city of Kaliningrad for reasons only known to the Ryniaks. A week later, Catherine is taken to the annual retreat of a fringe political party. Held captive in an ancient Austrian hunting lodge, she must protect herself and her daughter – while watching a family play out its political ambitions.
