The six-thousand-mile route of the world's longest, most exotic railway, the legendary Trans-Siberian Express, is the setting for this enthralling tale with a diverse cast of unforgettable characters. During the bad old days of the Soviet Union, famous American cancer specialist Dr. Alex Cousins is sent by the President of the United States to Russia to prolong the life of the Secretary General of the Politburo. While in Russia, Cousins learns that the Soviets plan to attack China. Suspecting that he knows their secret, the Soviets send him home via the Trans-Siberian Express, which, they hope, will keep him silent until it is too late to stop the attack. On the train, he meets a beautiful KGB Agent who has been ordered to keep him under surveillance until the trip is over. The inevitable occurs as Cousins and the gorgeous Soviet agent transcend political implications and fall desperately in love. This powerful love story will keep the reader transfixed and absorbed as the Trans-Siberian Express speeds its way across the vastness of Siberia.
