Whirlwind : Charlie McKenzie was the best in the business of CIA dirty work - until he was double-crossed by his bosses and jailed to cover up a mammoth intelligence blunder. Now they want him back. And Charlie wants to get even. A Russian spy has stumbled upon the most important U.S. military breakthrough since the atomic bomb - a top-secret technology called Whirlwind - and only the disgraced former operative has the skills necessary to retrieve it. But Charlie already knows too much. And once Whirlwind is back in Company hands, his enemies intend to betray him again - and put him out of the game permanently.
