A breathtaking tale of love, loyalty, and intrigue set in the early days of World War II from the acclaimed author of Soul Catcher

World War II seems lost for the beleaguered Soviets as they struggle to hold back the rising German tide at Sevastopol. But a fearless female sniper inspires hope during her nation's darkest hour. Word of the extraordinary Soviet heroine, Tat'yana Levchenko, reaches American First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who invites the beautiful assassin to tour the United States with her. For the Russians, Tat'yana's visit is an opportunity to gain support and valuable U.S. intelligence. But Tat'yana knows she is a pawn in a deadly game of treachery and deceit, forced to question the motivations of everyone around her . . . even the dashing and sympathetic American captain assigned as her translator. And then, as suddenly as she rose to international fame, Tat'yana vanishes without a trace.

Her strange disappearance will remain a mystery for decades—until a determined journalist stumbles across Tat'yana's story . . . and uncovers the astonishing truth.

Editorial Reviews

?Soul Catcher is at once rousing historical fiction, with plenty of action and picaresque characters played on the backdrop of pre-Civil War America, with all its rustic charm and backwoods cruelty...If you liked Charles Frazier?s best-selling, award-winning Civil War novel, Cold Mountain , you?ll enjoy Soul Catcher.?
