1989 - the world holds its breath. The Soviet Union is on the brink of collapse, its eastern empire in a state of rebellion. Only a street trader, a drug dealer, a discredited young colonel and a woman, haunted by her past, stand between the world and Armageddon. STROIKA is the story of their friendship, love and betrayal, the quest for unparalleled wealth... and a coup which threatens them all.
Stroika is a fast moving, atmospheric tale, charting the destruction of the old Soviet elite and rise of the new. Against the group gather dark and powerful forces determined to roll back perestroika and restore order to the Soviet Empire… even if it means Armageddon.
