Ex-Cold War spies bite back . . .The darkest secrets of a Russian oligarch—a legacy from Stalin. A hidden batch of the CIA’s Stinger missiles. And the insatiable Afghan thirst for revenge.

'Just when I think Mr. Turpin can't get any better, he scores again!!' — Amazon reviewer.

Ex-CIA war crimes investigator Joe Johnson is sucked into an inquiry which delves into the deadly world of Soviet and US undercover operations in Afghanistan during the 1980s—and mysterious connections to current US and Russian politics.

Johnson and his ex-MI6 colleague Jayne Robinson find themselves pursuing a Russian oligarch with strong links to Putin and a past he would rather keep hidden—and an Afghan mujahideen bent on the most bloodthirsty revenge.

The investigation is thrown awry by Johnson’s crooked former CIA boss, now on the run. Could this be Johnson's chance to finally nail him? If so, he can't afford a miscalculation of the dangers lurking in the Hindu Kush mountains, ridden with heavily armed Taliban insurgents.

The story reaches a raw climax in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Moscow, and Kabul, as Johnson battles to overcome the powerful forces lined up against him, including former KGB agents.

Stalin’s Final Sting is a gripping thriller—the fourth in the Joe Johnson series—with some twists that the reader will never see coming.
