Death’s Foot Forward

By George B Mair

Dr. David Grant, NATO’s top security agent, was on his way back to Moscow, taking with him his passionate love for Maya, the top Russian ballerina, and a ruthless hatred for Sokolnikov, chief of Soviet counter-intelligence. But there was nothing complicated about his orders: ‘Remember. Our agreement is to kill. I want this man dead.’

David Grant’s orders were top secret and final. Only four men knew that failure on this mission could mean the enslavement of Western civilisation. Only one man suspected the fierce passions which made him accept almost impossible odds in his Moscow assignment. Only Grant himself knew the violence of his love for Maya and the cold purpose of his hate against General Sokolnikov, chief of Soviet counter-intelligence.

NATO’s top security agent is introduced to readers in a fast-moving thriller played against an accurate Kremlin background familiar to the author. It is a picture of what could happen tomorrow-or the next day . . .

George Brown Mair was born at Troon in Scotland in May, 1914 and was educated at Kilmarnock Academy and Glasgow University, where he qualified as a doctor. He visited most European countries, Asia from Japan to Turkey, South America, the West Indies, Canada, the United States, and parts of Africa. With his Dutch wife Trudie, he visited nearly all the Communist countries in Europe, during the course of which they were the first to photograph the interior of the Kremlin palaces and met many Soviet leaders.
