Blindfold Game (Mass Market Paperback)
In Thailand, a bomb destroys a tourist spot while two North Korean terrorists casually walk away from the site to plan the next phase of their plot against the United States.
In Washington, CIA analyst Hugh Rincon catches the chatter about something big being planned along the Pacific rim, and his best agent says its linked to the Thailand blast. Now Hugh is beginning to connect the dots between missing radioactive material, a SCUD missile sold on the black market, and a Russian ship sailing toward the Alaskan coast but the Administration refuses to heed his warning.
In the Bering Sea, Coast Guard cutter "Sojourner Truth "is on routine patrol. On board is Hugh's estranged wife, executive officer Sara Lange. Sara and her ship are Hugh's only hope for stopping the terrorists if she's willing to believe her ex-husband's story and risk her own career--and her crew's lives--to hunt down a death ship .

"BLINDFOLD GAME, like its predecessors, can be read on two levels--as a cleverly-executed thriller with an intriguing protagonist or as a fascinating exploration of an exotic society with its own unique culture. Either way, you can't lose."--San Diego Union-Tribune
