One man is manipulating the KGB, MI5 and the CIA to engineer his own meteoric rise ... until he come up against Stephen Haden. The services of Haden are usually available only to those whose fortunes are sufficiently compelling. Petra Baronin, the wife of a Russian defector, implores Haden to find her missing husband, he reluctantly agrees. In the Ninth Circle Haden uses his own nonpartisanship to expose the stunningly duplicitous personal ambitions of men who are supposed to be serving their countries. What he discovers is terrifying---and all-too-plausible.
