What if the only man who can get it back is convinced its a legitimate business transaction?Ferrari-driving Roger Piersig made his reputation schmoozing and pressing the flesh, a Washington lawyer who deftly finessed his sometimes-shady clients sensitive technology exports through bureaucratic quagmires. That special skill lands him a lucrative job with a Canadian scientist operating a mysterious research lab in frigid Lapland, but when a beautiful Finnish intelligence agent exposes unnerving events near the lab, an obscure CIA sting operation starts to unravel. Pulled into the middle of the ensuing life-and-death struggle, Piersig just wants to earn his fee and find true love. If only it was that easy.Night Frost is a thought-provoking literary novel built up on the chassis of a spy thriller, that plays out like a Shakespearian tragedy. The 112,000-word story breaks all the rules as it explores the vulnerabilities of the human mind, with European sensibilities and structure.Anti-hero Piersig is joined by a vengeful CIA spy-chief, his Iranian ex-protege (and ex-double-agent), a brilliant but resentful CIA scientist sent out to con the Iranians, an old-school Finnish Interior Minister in way over his head, and Lotta Svärd—Piersigs soul-mate—whose volatile personal agenda throws gasoline on the fire.Night Frost is about the operatives who serve the political elite, pawns recruited and victims created, traumatic stress and crushing regret. Motivations are honest and true, supported by richly textured flashbacks and multiple intertwined subplots.The stakes grow deadly as all sides maneuver to gain an advantage, until it becomes apparent the priceless technology is about to be smuggled out of Finland to Tehran. With time quickly running out, its do or die.
