Capitol Spy : A Russian spy in Congress. A ruthless assassin. Two reporters who never quit.
In Washington, D.C., dissident Russian reporter Andrei Rublov has uncovered the biggest story of his career: the Kremlin has a mole in the United States Congress. But before Rublov can reveal who, he dies in a seemingly tragic accident.
As The Republic’s star reporters, Tom Novak and Stella Mitchell, investigate, a woman from Novak’s past offers a chance at breaking the story. But now Russia’s ruthless FSB have her in their sights, and time is running out.
With an expert assassin closing in, Novak and Mitchell must risk everything they hold dear to identify the Russian spy, and unlock a conspiracy decades in the making.
“The stakes didn’t get any higher.
What didn’t help was the sudden reappearance of the black van. It was being driven more aggressively now, swinging right out of Potomac Avenue, and following much closer. Its lights were on a purposely hostile full beam, which also made it impossible for Andrei to make out the face of the driver.
Andrei flicked his rear-view mirror aside, but the Impala’s interior was flooded with the van’s headlights.
Andrei cursed to himself, ‘Shit.’ He knew he was in it now.
He wasn’t going to take any chances, and keyed ‘911’ into his phone screen. All he had to do was hit the green call sign if he got rammed.
The black van was all over his back bumper, but made no move to take him off the road. It was just following malevolently close.
Andrei knew he had to lose the tail somehow or else he’d be followed into the airport and his destination spotted: he’d be starting all over again at the other end. The sort of people that were after him had assets all over the globe. He needed a clean break or he was as good as dead.
He used every inch of the road to make the tight left turn onto Constitution Avenue, touching forty-five as he clipped the apex.”
