He finally concludes that Russian President Volkov, a long-time enemy of his from his days as a congressman, is responsible and he plans to assassinate him. But can he actually kill a head of state and get away with it? And what will the ramifications be for Chiara, who’s alive but terrified the killer — or killers — will make a second attempt?
