In 1953, as rumors spread of Stalin's deteriorating mental health and a thermonuclear program designed to ignite World War III, new president Dwight Eisenhower sanctions the CIA sending two agents, posing as man and wife, to assassinate the Soviet leader. Reader's Digest Cond Bks. Tour.

Blackwell North Amer
January 1953. The Cold War is at its coldest. President Dwight D. Eisenhower is receiving increasingly alarming reports that Joseph Stalin's mental health is rapidly deteriorating. That he's about to recommence his horrifying purges. That his thermonuclear bomb program is almost complete and likely to precipitate another world war.
Within hours of his inauguration, Eisenhower makes the most audacious decision ever taken by an American President: the sanctioning of Operation Snow Wolf. Two CIA agents, posing as man and wife, will travel across the icy wastes of Russia to Moscow to assassinate the world's most powerful despot.
Quite by chance, however, from the moment they land on Soviet soil, the KGB gets wind of the plan. An expert manhunter is put in charge of finding the CIA agents and eliminating them. The two agents find themselves under fatal threat from two fronts. One they expected. And one they most certainly did not.
