This week, we’re giving away three copies of Moscow X by David McCloskey, author of Damascus Station. In Moscow X, two CIA operatives embark on a perilous mission in Russia, posing as a couple to recruit Putin's moneyman. Against the backdrop of opulent luxury and gangland violence, the novel unfolds as an exciting tale of espionage, where the unexpected loyalties of a Russian woman hold the key to their mission's success. Here’s the blurb:
A daring CIA operation threatens chaos in the Kremlin. Its execution is foiled by a Russian woman with secret loyalties.
CIA operatives Sia and Max enter Russia to recruit Vladimir Putin's moneyman. Sia works for a London firm that conceals the wealth of the super-rich. Max's family business in Mexico ‒ a CIA front since the 1960s ‒ is a farm that breeds high-end racehorses.
They pose as a couple, and their targets are Vadim, Putin's private banker, and his wife Anna, who is both a banker and an intelligence officer. As they descend further into a Russian world dripping with luxury and rife with gangland violence, Sia and Max's hope may be Anna, who is playing a game of her own. Careening between the horse ranch and the dark opulence of Saint Petersburg, Moscow X is both a gripping and a daring work of political commentary on the conflict between Washington and Moscow.
