Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Before Putin there was Karpov, a like-minded KGB officer with devious plans for outsmarting the West. Written by a former Green Beret and Soviet Counterintelligence Specialist, Coercion is a Vince Flynn high-stakes cat and mouse game crossed with a Ken Follett historical drama . It’s “An entertaining thriller … with well-paced action, appealing characters and snappy writing.” –Kirkus
On the eve of Perestroika while investigating his brother’s death, Alex Ferris stumbles onto a KGB General’s scheme to regain Russia’s superpower status. After surviving attempts on his life and assembling bizarre clues, Alex flies from San Francisco to Siberia to find 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.
Tim began his career 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. Moving to Moscow in the midst of Perestroika, then Brussels during the formation of the EU, and eventually landing in Silicon Valley as a startup CEO, Tim has enjoyed a globetrotting career.
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 planned to be a thriller writer’s research, they certainly help.
Addicted to reading thrillers since 1994, Tim has been writing them since 2004. His thrillers have all hit Amazon’s Top Ten Best Seller lists. He lives with his wife Elena and their two daughters in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tim earned an MBA from Wharton, and MA in International Studies from the University of Pennsylvania.
