To prevent the escalating possibility of the Russian mob getting its hands on the main ingredient to build an atomic bomb, British agent Charlie Muffin is sent to Moscow, where he must go undercover as an arms trader to infiltrate leading Russian Mafia families.

Blackwell North Amer
Russia is falling apart. The economy is in shambles, and the police hold very little power. On the brink of chaos, only organized crime gets results; the Russian mafia controls the streets, the militia, maybe even the government. And as the families battle for supremacy, the embattled boss of bosses plans a job to keep himself in power forever: the ultimate nuclear robbery. Uranium and plutonium have vanished from nuclear plants for years, a few grams here, a few grams there; sufficient cause for concern, but not for panic. You need five kilograms to make a Hiroshima-sized bomb, after all. But this time, the heist is of 250 kilograms of weapons-grade material.
The Russians are frantic, the West terrified; the risk of Armageddon looms close on the horizon. To prevent it, Charlie is sent to Moscow, home of the most dangerous trade in the world. To prevent the weapons from being smuggled out of the country, Charlie must go undercover as an arms trader and infiltrate the leading Russian mafia families.
