Make Russia great again ... Or die!

Constantine can no longer hide in Europe. As he discovers a century-old secret, he must flee back to Moscow, chased by assassins.

Only one man can save him. Eugene Sokolov: an officer in the world's most elite rescue unit, a martial arts legend… and Constantine's brother.

They face an enemy unlike any other. In a game run by a KGB spymaster, the fate of Russia will depend on their survival.

Winner of the Adventure Writer's Grandmaster Award from the Clive Cussler Collector's Society.

Rarely do I give up on a book I’ve paid for

But I couldn’t follow the story at all. Narrator didn’t help, but not sure anyone could have. I’ve listened to 50 books or more, maybe the second book I couldn’t finish. Maybe it’s just me but the story didn’t flow at all, couldn’t keep the characters straight or the plot. I’d recommend passing in this book, go listen to the new Lee Child book instead.
