Love, Spies & Cyanide

Love Spies and Cyanide

While Veteran Chief of Detectives Victor Bravo investigates a routine death at Colorado’s notorious Asylum for the Habitually Insane he discovers the cyanide poisoning of the glamorous master forger and con-artist, Galya Tannenbaum, was not self inflicted. As he searches for the killer he becomes entangled in 70’s era international espionage pitting FBI, CIA and KGB agents against each other, jockeying for control of Galya’s lover, Professor Thomas Riha, acclaimed Russian-Soviet authority. When Riha vanishes on March 15, 1969 on his way to teach a Russian History class at the University of Colorado the mystery leads to heightening Cold War tensions, Congressional hearings, outrage by J. Edgar Hoover, and even pre-Watergate abuse-of-power accusations against Richard Nixon.

R.K. Price’s third true-life crime thriller is based on the story Price broke as a newspaper reporter and splashed across across American headlines for weeks. To this day Riha has never been found. The case remains unsolved.
