Rachel Wolfe is an FBI agent working on a major investigation overseas. A well-known gunrunner has been murdered and his body set afire in London. A second victim has been found under similar circumstances. This precipitates a thrilling chase across Europe, a secret war between two intelligence factions, and a hunt for a killer who has an appointment to keep in Helsinki.

A strange, unusual and unsolved mystery in Russia's history is at the heart of this story - the unexplained death of nine mountaineers in the Dyatlov Pass fifty years before. The Sythian, a Russian thief and former assassin, plays a role in Wolfe's past.

I don't want to reveal more about this intriguing story, as I can't in good conscience ruin the surprises ahead for readers. The novel is by Alec Nevela-Lee, who is also the author of the highly acclaimed Icon Thief. City of Exiles is exciting, and a very good read.
