Description - The 14th Colony by Steve Berry

People say the Cold War is coming back.

For some, it never went away.

Shot down over Siberia in what was to be a simple meet-and-greet-mission, ex-Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is forced into a fight for survival against Aleksandr Zorin, whose loyalty to the former Soviet Union has festered for decades into an intense hatred of the United States.

Before escaping, Malone learns that Zorin is headed for North America to join another ex-KGB officer, a long-term sleeper imbedded in the West in the dying days of the old U.S.S.R.

Inauguration Day for a new President of the U.S.A. is only hours away. Zorin's deadly plan of attack will exploit both a flaw in the Constitution, and an even more flawed presidential succession act, to bring about political chaos.

Armed with a weapon left over from the Soviet years, one long thought to be just a myth, Zorin is

aided by a shocking secret hidden in the archives of America's oldest fraternal organization, the Society of Cincinnati. This group once lent out its military know-how to presidents, even helping to formulate three covert invasion plans of Canada.

In a race against the clock from Russia to the White House itself, Malone must not only battle Zorin, he must also confront his deepest fear, a crippling weakness that he's long denied but one that now jeopardizes everything. Steve Berry's trademark mix of fact, fiction, history and speculation is all here in this fast-paced and utterly compelling new thriller.
