1963. In a desolate Russian penal colony, the radio blares the news of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy...
Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vasin's new post as director of a gulag camp in the middle of a frozen tundra is far from a promotion. This is where disgraced agents, like Vasin, are disappeared - sent to die forgotten. And quietly.
But tensions in the camp are running high and when a violent revolt breaks out, Vasin finds himself on the run. With him is a mysterious prisoner - who holds the key to the most dangerous secret in the who ordered Kennedy's murder.In a breathless race that takes them through the Soviet Union - from the barren Siberian wastelands to the stunning halls of the Catherine Palace, and into the gritty streets of Leningrad and Moscow - Vasin must stay one step ahead of the deadliest spy and police organizations in the world . . . and keep the most wanted man in Russia alive.
The journey will push Vasin's loyalty, morality and his patriotism to the limit. And he must confront the ultimate fall in line, or die fighting the system.
With masterful storytelling that weaves together a explosive moment in history with the cutthroat machinations of Soviet politics, Owen Matthews' White Fox captures the paradigm-shifting assassination from a unique Soviet point of view.
This is a page-turning thriller across Russia, where characters facing impossible odds are forced to decide between truth, justice and all-out war.
