Welcome to the final volume of the Charlie Doig Trilogy.
Lenin may have just seized power for the Bolsheviks, but Charlie Doig has just seized twenty-eight tonnes of Lenin's gold. For two days he's the richest man in Russia. However, on hearing that his escape route to the west has been cut off by the Red armies, he hides his gold and sets off along the Trans-Siberian Railway to the Pacific, and freedom.
Russia is in chaos and Charlie has to fight his way past refugees, bandits and murderers, only to find when he gets to Siberia that the Japanese have invaded. When he meets an old flame, Countess Cynthia von Zipf, and is sent to Japan to eliminate a deadly rival, Charlie realises that this adventure is only just beginning.
