Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Written by a former Green Beret and counterintelligence specialist with a decade of experience on the ground in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, Coercion is a Robert Ludlum global conspiracy crossed with a Ken Follett historical drama.
On the eve of perestroika, Alex Ferris stumbles onto KGB General Karpov’s scheme to regain Russia’s superpower status while investigating his brother’s death. After surviving attempts on his life and assembling bizarre clues, Alex settles on a most unusual suspect only to discover that Elaine is a victim herself. Unseen masters are forcing her into traitorous acts through nefarious threats. How many silent slaves like Elaine are out there? What do her tormenters want? Can he stop them?
Alex flies from San Francisco to Siberia to find those answers and avenge his brother. In the midst of that frozen landscape and those tumultuous times, he survives infiltration, interrogation, and romance only to learn that he too is being manipulated as part of a much grander scheme.
A mathematics and philosophy major with an adventurous spirit, Tim served in the Green Berets where he learned Russian and specialized in Soviet counterintelligence, but switched from espionage to arbitrage with the fall of the Berlin Wall. After working a couple years as a Foreign Exchange Trader, he returned to school to earn an MBA from Wharton, but it was his concurrent Masters in International Studies that steered Tim’s career.
Moving to Moscow in the midst of Perestroika, then Brussels during the formation of the EU, and eventually landing in Silicon Valley, Tim has enjoyed a globetrotting career in the medical device industry. Equally active outside the boardroom, Tim has climbed the peaks of Mount Olympus, hang glided the cliffs of Rio de Janeiro, and parachuted into places undisclosed. He walked the Serengeti with a Maasai warrior, worked medical experiments with an orbiting cosmonaut, and crossed the Atlantic with the Gorbachevs. While none of his adventures were intended as research for his thrillers, they certainly help.
Addicted to reading thrillers since 1994, Tim has been writing them since 2004. His three thrillers have all hit Amazon’s Top Ten Best Seller lists. He lives with his wife Elena and their two daughters in California.
