The Russian is the exciting sequel to Brad Kelln's Tell Me More. Picking up only months after the events of the first installment, this second book in the Blake Waiter series finds our reluctant hero in the middle of an international debacle. While his wife continues to struggle with the multiple tragedies that have befallen their family, including the disappearance of their son some three years ago, and while he tries to care for her, Dr. Waiter gets assigned a new client from the Special Services Coordination for High-Value Assets (or SSCHVA for short) only to find out that this patient is a controversial Russian submariner who is officially listed as dead. Before Blake can even meet the man, a hostage-taking on a Halifax Harbour ferry draws the attention of police, and they enlist his services. Throw in the return of the British assassin, Constant White; the assistance of Blake's favourite patient, Chuck; and the rumours that the Waiters' son might have returned, and let the non-stop action begin.
