"When the USSR collapsed, KGB officers lost their jobs, and at least one used his position to prepare for the future - in this case, by stealing a portable nuclear device. Fifteen years later, in need of cash, he intends to sell it. Meanwhile, a British Secret Intelligence Service operative has caught wind of the prospective sale - and the fact that a middleman in the deal has employed a chauffeur who's actually an undercover London cop. Though he and his putative boss are under increasing pressure and scrutiny from the distrustful mafioso brokering the deal, the cop now has to answer to the Secret Service too. Compared to the work of such spy fiction greats as John le Carré, Gerald Seymour's Timebomb is "intricately crafted and clocklike in its controlled release of psychological and geopolitical tension" (Kirkus Reviews)."
