"From the authors of Chain Reaction and The Scorpion Sanction comes a superb international thriller, a chillingly authentic book that sweeps the reader to Moscow and into a world where men fight desperately for freedom, and too often lose. When David Solomon boards the plane that will carry him from New York to the Tchaikovsky International Music Competition in Moscow, he represents America's best hope for the coveted gold medal. A darkly handsome young man, he has dedicated his whole life to this single goal. For him, a triumph in Moscow will secure his future as an international violinist; for his Russian emigrant father, it will serve vengeance on the political regime that persecuted his people and drove them from their homeland. David arrives in Moscow obsessed only by the beckoning promise of the gold medal, but within hours is drawn into aweb of frightening intrigue. The young musician's brilliant reputation, co mbined with his Jewish hertage, has drawn the surveillance of KGB agents, the self-serving attention of a cynicai American journalist and desperate pleas for help from Jewish dissidents. Supported only by his growing love fora beautiful American soprano, he plunges into a terrifying labyrnth of con spiracies, where every move is followed, every conversation recorded, and the threat of arrest looms ever closer. The Music Wars is a gripping novel about the realities of Russian society. Its astounding twists of plot are executed with consummate skill, and its characters haunt the heart and mind. More than thai it is the portrait of a young man whose courage exceeds his dreams." (from the dj). Very good in nicked dustjacket. With promotional material laid in. 20.00
