Black OPS are set to take out a Canadian businessman who is really a Ukranian that while working with the KGB killed thousands. There is another operation in play to take out the same man and they collide with the Black OP. Their operation fails, the man escapes, and now he wants to hunt his killers. The story is well constructed. The main protagonis shows strong cold character but at the end mellows down. If you have not read "The Whole Truth" you should read it before "Deliver Us From Evil" (less)
