After his release from a Siberian gulag, a Soviet negotiator discovers that freedom in Russia can be just as dangerous as imprisonmentJosef Bultova nearly died in prison camp. Once one of the Soviet Union's most adept international negotiators, his work with the West grew so intimate that the Politburo rewarded him with a one-way ticket to Siberia. The meager food, heavy work, and bitter cold took a toll on him, sapping his strength until, just as he was sure he could no longer go on, the Politburo let him go. Now he has a new assignment: shepherding a provincial Russian author, whose evocative portrayals of life in the impoverished countryside have him on the shortlist for the Nobel Prize. Josef's task is to ensure that the prize comes his way--whatever the cost. But as Moscow watches his every move, Josef realizes that he may not have escaped the gulag after all. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
