From the back cover:
An ultra-secret MI6 codename
A deadly game of deception and intrigue
Dark forces from the depths of history
The terrible secret at the heart of the cold war

London, 1963. A cryptic phone call forces ex-MI6 agent Andrew Hale to confront the ultra-secret wartime mission that has haunted his adult life.

Operation Declare took Hale from Nazi-occupied Paris to the ruins of post-war Berlin, through the trackless wastes of the Arabian desert to a night of terror on the glacial slopes of Mount Ararat.

Now, with the Cold war at its height, he is ordered to return to the mountain and face the dark secret entombed within its icy summit. Hale has no choice but to comply, for Declare is the key to a conflict far deeper, far colder, than the Cold War itself.

Declare won the World Fantasy Award in 2001 and has recently been re-released.

great book. It's absolutely insane, but a must-read for fans of alt-history.

Are they re-releasing all of Power's old stuff? a lot of it has been hard to find lately.
