In a playground in Brooklyn, Artie Cohen is led to a dead girl
up in duct tape on a children's swing. He soon realizes the killer
murdered the wrong girl—the intended victim was his best friend Tolya
Sverdloff's daughter, who soon meets a similar fate. Artie
Cohen—Russan-born New York police detective—is drawn inexorably from New
York to London and ultimately to Moscow in pursuit of the killer. There,
already in over his head, Artie uncovers a painful truth about his past
that puts Tolya's life in the balance.
