FOR THE RIGHT PRICE, SIMON LEONIDOVICH WILL DELIVER ANYTHING, ANYWHERE.

To facilitate this deadly covert operation, professional courier Simon Leonidovich is recruited to deliver vital CIA documents to the North Korean dissidents. But when Simon finds himself trapped behind enemy lines with a briefcase full of incriminating evidence, he discovers the true nature of the threat: an elaborate conspiracy by someone within the administration -- to take down the American President. . . .
