Perry and Gail manage to contact the right people back at home, and after some tense weeks of "familiarization" are sent to Paris with a team of "Service" agents to try and pluck Dima and his family out harm's way just in the nick of time.
The characters didn't do much for me, and the plot seemed much too contrived to have actually gone off the way it does. That said, if you need a break from whatever else you've been reading and want a fairly light spy potboiler, pick this one up. It won't keep you up late reading, but I was certainly curious enough about what was going to go wrong that I finished it. And in the expectation that something was going to go wrong, I was not disappointed in the least.
