*Preview of Tom Clancy's The Cardinal of the Kremlin*
In his third part of the Jack Ryan novels, Clancy uses more of the Cold War American-Soviet conflict to focus on hero Jack Ryan as he steps in to investigate mysterious buildings on the Soviet-Afghan border. Before the examination can continue, the Soviets deactivate a satellite with a "free electron laser". Only because of a well placed spy - in the highest ranks of the Kremlin - are the details of this secret activity leaked to the United States government. And then the games begin as intelligence is transferred back and forth and there are attacks and counterattacks between the intelligence agencies.
We are introduced to Mikhail Filitov who is first seen towards the end of The Hunt for Red October. Filotov is a Soviet war hero and a former Red Army Colonel - but his CIA code name is "Cardinal" as he is working for the Americans as a spy. An encounter in a Moscow subway leads the KGB to begin a hunt for their intelligence leak. During delicate negotiations between the governments of the US and the USSR, their secret espionage groups are locked in a struggle. What the Cardinal knows could change the outcome of everything. Ryan must outduel the KGB and bring the Cardinal out alive to secure this important knowledge that he contains.
