The Operative

The Operative Alec Carvill was the CIA's greatest weapon as an undercover operative during the Cold War. But when his plan to help a top Russian scientist escape is uncovered by the KGB, Alec is captured and held prisoner in Kiev for eleven years. Presumed dead, his file is closed by the CIA.

Former KGB agent Basil Bellanin detects the scientist's secret: hidden behind a oil painting is something priceless -- the cold fusion formula for cheap, limitless power. But Bellanin needs Alec's talent for the job and arranges his break-out to bring him to Boston.

Alec is a dead look-alike for the real purchaser of the painting, flamboyant billionaire Felix Grady. The perfect scheme goes astray when the real Grady shows up at the bank a day early.

Alec must quickly employ both his brains and brawn to uncover Grady's true identity -- and motivation -- before time runs out.
