Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, "A Darker Place" once again proves that When it comes to thriller writers, [Higgins] stands well above the crowd.--(Associated Press).
Outspoken Russian writer Alexander Kurbsky wanted to "disappear" into the West. To avoid the wrath of the ruling elite, he makes elaborate plans with covert experts Charles Ferguson and Sean Dillon for his escape.
It's a real coup for the West-except for one thing: Kurbsky is still working for the Russians. And his master plan is about to unfold.
