When the US government wanted the perfect human weapon to bring the Soviet union to its knees, Brian Newman was an obvious choice. They transformed him into a commando so cunning that, left on his own in a remote Russian province, he devastated Russian industry in a hellish nuclear catastrophe. Now the Americans have him back after six years of isolation and torture in a frozen Russian gulag. Can Newman safely go free? Or has his ordeal stripped him of any last remnants of humanity? A psychiatrist believes she has discovered an incredible clue to the Newman enigma, but before she can convince her colleagues, Newman escapes and people start turning up dead. They are forced to confront a possibility even more disturbing than the specter of Brian Newman at large: that Newman is no longer homo sapiens, but rather a new man, the über man, ultimate successor to our race, Nietsche's prophetic dream and our own worst nightmare.

From the Publisher:

The next step in human evolution is a killer. The ultimate weapon of mass destruction is here.

From the Inside Flap:

ed to be our deadliest weapon.  Now he's our worst nightmare....

A noted expert on counterterrorism and international security, Richard Steinberg has used his firsthand knowledge of covert military strategies to craft the year's most daring tale of espionage and political intrigue. Dazzling and unforgettable, this power-packed tour de force is one part Robert Ludlum, two parts Thomas Harris--and 100% pure terror....

Code-named Gemini, he is conditioned to do just two things: breathe and kill.

His deadliest mission brought the Soviet Union to its knees. His reward: six years in a freezing Russian gulag--drugged, tortured, and abandoned.

Now a brilliant psychiatrist is charged with unlocking his sinister secrets. She will peer into the most fascinating and malevolent mind she has ever encountered.

And she will discover what Gemini already knows--that the most unstoppable enemies are the ones we create ourselves....
