En esta novela épica, Maria Tereshkova es una enemiga del estado ruso. Una ardiente reformista con un mensaje anticorrupción, tiene millones de seguidores leales, y el Kremlin no se detendrá hasta que muera. María llega a Chicago y en la mira de un pistolero enviado por Moscú para matarla. El asesino es ex soldado de élite, mentalmente lisiado y cruelmente marcado. Sin embargo, a pesar de sus heridas mentales y físicas, es inmensamente fuerte y hábil con una amplia gama de armas. Un hombre sin alma, carente de la más remota compasión por los hombres, las mujeres o los niños. Un experto cazador de tiradores, y nunca falla.
Por casualidad, un ex agente quemado de la DEA, Cris Rhodes, la encuentra por primera vez en las calles de Chicago. Él la arrastra a salvo, pero el pistolero está justo detrás de ellos. El asesino deja atrás un rastro de cuerpos y no se detiene en nada para hacer la matanza. Cris Rhodes está igualmente decidida a protegerla. La historia es un paseo sin aliento, montaña rusa. Un hombre luchando contra una máquina de matar rusa impresionante. Está en juego la vida de una mujer que es la única esperanza para una nación que sufre.
