Book Description

BRAINFIRE by Campbell Armstrong as Campbell Black - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Campbell Armstrong.

A terrifying story of extrasensory perception in the service of international intrigue.

As a small party of Soviet officials watch, a Chinese soldier stumbles aimlessly toward them across the snow-swept border between the USSR and China. They take him without resistance. In the laboratory, tests show nothing irregular physically except for the lack of muscular reflex, but he is a man from whom all mind has fled, "just like a match blown out." First victim.

And then Richard Rayner, American diplomat attached to the Vice President's state visit to Russia. Richard has a beautiful wife, a high-level position in the State Department, fine prospects. But one night after a dinner with the Soviet First Secretary, he stands up, complains of a headache, and suddenly flings himself to his death from the window of his hotel room. Second victim.

Why? Why did Richard kill himself - his eyes empty? To his brother, John, a U.S. Embassy intelligence expert in London, it makes no sense. But he sets out to find some answers.

There isn't too much to go on until a Soviet team of soccer players arrives in London for an exhibition match. Accompanying the players, John Rayner discovers, are Victor Andreyev, one of the greatest parapsychologists in the world, and a semicomatose old woman, obviously near death, addicted to morphine and beset by recurring nightmares.

As Rayner continues to uncover, maddeningly slowly, bits of the puzzle, intrigue, doublecross and death mount higher. And the motley soccer assemblage gears up for their most important game in D.C. Stadium, Washington - a match to be attended by the President of the United States.
