In the Luzhniki Olympic Stadium, a race for life and death is taking place – and every single second counts...

Moscow, 1980: athletes from around the globe are preparing for the men's 5000 metre race. Each has their own hopes for gold and a unique set of challenges to face on the track ahead. With the clock ticking and the arena roaring, tensions are running high.

However, that is not the only race taking place. Away from the eyes of the crowd, a CIA double agent seeking to defect to the USA must evade capture by the KGB, whilst a Ukrainian nationalist cell counts down the seconds to a catastrophic bomb plot that puts the lives of everyone in the arena at risk.

What should be a day of celebration soon becomes a lethal mission to steal secrets and save lives. Inside Luzhniki, time is not on anyone's side – every single second counts in this race for more than just Olympic gold...

High-octane and razor-sharp, Moscow 5000 is a political thriller perfect for fans of Jack Higgins and Ben Macintyre.
