Russian Peacekeeping Strategies in the CIS:The Case of Moldova Georgia and Tajikistan. 1st ed. 2000 D. Lynch
New York Times best-selling author Dale Brown goes beyond the headlines in this high-tech, high-tension military thriller in which a resurgent Russia enflames sectarian unrest and violence in Ukraine and Poland, setting off a stealth robotic war and escalating an international crisis. In the spring of 2017, the US economy is rebounding under President Stacy Anne Barbeau, the country´s first female president. But her leadership is about to be severely tested: Russian president Gennadiy Gryzlov has sent special troops, disguised as pro-Russian activists, into Ukraine and Moldova. Though NATO is outraged, its response is tepid. Refusing to let Russian aggression go unpunished, former US president Kevin Martindale approaches Polish president Peter Wilk with a radical solution: a counterattack using a covert force of Cybernetic Infantry Device (CID): manned robots. Underwritten by the wealthy Wilk, Operation Iron Wolf is launched - without the knowledge of the Americans or its NATO partners. The CID´s initial strikes are successful, infuriating Gryzlov and propelling President Barbeau to pledge Western help to investigate the attack. With international tensions at the boiling point, Martindale´s secret alliance, supported by the best military technology, is determined to outmaneuver the Russians. In this battle that will determine the fate of Eastern Europe, just which side will win? 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dufris.

Seattle reporter Mimi Raynard is having a bad week. Her ex-husband is now her boss at the TV station and wants her head on a platter. When three prostitutes die of a suspicious heroin overdose Mimi gets the story, but in her nervous enthusiasm, manages to bungle it. The narcotics detective on the case tries to help, but both are outfoxed by the buxom intern. Desperate for a new job, Mimi takes a friend´s advice and dresses up as a Russian Mafia madam for a resume tape she has no intention of sending out. But the lark turns serious and the fallout is deadly. At the Seattle Police Department, the narcotics detective, Shad Mulgrew, has his own career crisis. He´s been framed for stealing drugs from evidence. Are the murdered prostitutes linked to his case? Is he getting too close to the truth? And what is Mimi´s father doing working for Eastern Europe´s last Communists? Working together to save their careers, Mimi and Shad look for the truth, from the fishing docks of Puget Sound to the tiny Republic of Moldova. At turns funny, sexy, and thrilling with an edgy modern voice, Jump Cut depicts Seattle from the inside, from the joys of Seattle single life to its dark underbelly, from the lush islands to the top of the Space Needle, as the cop and the reporter try to salvage their reputations. They end up saving much more in a wild race to rescue the city they love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kristi Burns.
