(From the publisher):
The countdown to DEADLOCK has begun...
It should have been a tranquil, if unwelcome holiday for Tweed. But six fresh graves in an isolated Norfolk churchyard mark the start of one of the deadliest manhunts ever undertaken.
A Russian master planner has gone missing. He hasn't defected. He has vanished - with enough explosive power to take out a great city, leaving no survivors. Now the Soviets, appalled that détente may be destroyed, are asking Tweed to track him down.
Somewhere in Europe, a ruthless cold-blooded killer is moving towards his unknown target, a near genius for whom 'terror is the ultimate weapon'. He has planned a brutal act of violence which will bring Europe to its knees.
With Bob Newman, foreign correspondent turned undercover agent, and Paula Grey, his assistant, Tweed must locate the Soviet renegade before crisis becomes holocaust. The final confrontation will be one of the most terrifying they have ever faced.
