Razor Kane is a journalist with an edge, or three. Having been kicked out of the CIA for his 'extracurricular' activities, Razor is now writing articles about his exploits for all the readers back home. Razor Kane is as much a newsman as Indiana Jones is an archeologist. Part investigative journalist, thrill seeker and adrenaline junky, Razor always ends up in the middle of the action, in whatever remote country he may find himself, which is usually one where the alcohol flows and exotic, friendly woman are plenty.
This time Razor penetrates the deepest depths of the Former USSR to hunt down a group of communist hardliners who are plotting to threaten world peace. Razor will fight and match his wits against the enemy in environments like Chernobyl, Mausoleum and Kremlin, some of the most well-known and symbolic places of the former Communist rule. This is the world behind the 'Iron Curtain', a world of a totalitarian Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War.
Razor has to draw upon all his skills and experience for this challenge. Stealth plays a leading role: Razor has to move quietly and deliberately; slip behind enemies unnoticed; duck for cover behind objects; and hide in the shadows. He can disable alarms, pick locks or confound security cameras. When in a tight spot, he is good with a gun, but usually outfoxing the enemy is the best way to succeed.
Using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets, he must now evade or overcome elite Soviet forces and defeat the conspiracy before he is sent to a Siberian prison camp or killed.
