""Thou shalt not get caught" may be an assassin's eleventh commandment, but it's impossible not to get caught up in this cleverly plotted thriller. Connor Fitzgerald's secret life as a CIA operative threatens to unravel following the attempted killing of the new and reactionary Russian president. Pace and pauses are important, and narrator Hecht gets them just right. He also gets inside a variety of characters--the decent American president, several unpleasant Russians, Connor's kaleidoscopic aliases, the devious female CIA head and, of course, Connor himself, whose basic humanity and long-term love for his wife are juxtaposed with his ruthless on-the-job persona.
