Intent to Deceive

A beautiful Russian double agent narrowly escapes certain death on a Russian waterfront. She subsequently uses her Olympic high bar experience to vault past two assassination attempts. Anastasia has no idea who has betrayed her and intends her harm – are her enemies Russian, Kazakh, Chechen, or the CIA? And she is completely unaware of how these perfidies are related to missing Kazakhstani nuclear warheads – weapons that will soon be threatening the safety of tens of millions of innocent people.

Does Anastasia need the assistance of the American submarine captain who retrieved her under fire from Vladivostok? Will her pride even permit him to help? Together will they be able to thwart the international thieves? And will love, death or the mushroom of a nuclear explosion bloom on the snowy steppes of Kazakhstan?

"Admiral Dave Oliver weaves a tale of international intrigue, espionage and global security that will have you questioning the politics and security at the very highest levels of our country. If you are a fan of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series, you will love Dave Oliver's Peter O'Brien! Definitely a thought provoking, action packed novel of the highest order. Best of all, it is based on jaw dropping facts and events! Highly recommended!"
