From the Publisher:
Informing his wife two days after the birth of their daughter that he has a brain tumor, Kari Vaara recovers from surgery to assume leadership of a rogue black-ops unit while investigating the assassination of an immigrants' rights advocate at the height of xenophobic uprisings in Finland. (suspense).
"Thompson's atmospheric novel nicely interweaves real-life events in Finland, such as the meteoric rise of the anti-immigration political party True Finns, into the taut storyline. Thompson is an American writer who has lived in Finland for more than a dozen years. As a result, readers get a well-drawn picture of Finnish society without the sometimes- clunky translation that often mars foreign thrillers." - Lourdes Venard Winter 2012
