Dead Hand

Dead Hand Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When an unforeseen asteroid strikes Siberia with the force of a thousand Hiroshimas, it triggers Dead Hand, the ultimate defense mechanism developed by the Soviets at the height of the Cold War.

The missiles are pointing at the United States and its European allies, and ultra-nationalist General Likatchev is willing to use them as blackmail to topple the government in Moscow and return Russia to her status as world power.

When Russia responds to world queries with cold silence, a NATO special operations unit is dropped into Siberia. Trapped in a region ravaged by freezing snow and the hellish aftermath of the asteroid impact, the NATO forces are racing against time to track down Likatchev and dismantle Dead Hand before a global holocaust is unleashed.

Synopsis:

When an asteroid strikes Siberia with the force of a thousand atom bombs, it triggers Dead Hand, the ultimate defense mechanism developed by the Soviets in the Cold War. Ultra-nationalist General Likatchev is willing to use this weapon to topple the government and return Russia to its previous status as a major world power. To stop Likatchev, a NATO special ops unit is dropped into Siberia in a race to dismantle Dead Hand. (May)
