    "Wow! The Black Sea is a gem, cut and polished to perfection by a master craftsman. I wish I'd written it! This book made me a Richard Setlowe junkie."

    — Stephen Coonts, author of The Traitor


    "A basket is delivered by a rickshaw driver to the door of Singapore's elegant Raffles Hotel. The doorman receives the basket, inside of which is the severed head of a Russian naval officer. So begins Setlowe's high-action thriller with a post-glasnost twist."
