Publisher's Summary

The darkest secrets of a Russian oligarch - a legacy from Stalin. A hidden batch of the CIA’s Stinger missiles. And the insatiable Afghan thirst for revenge. Ex-CIA war crimes investigator Joe Johnson is sucked into an inquiry which delves into the deadly world of Soviet and US undercover operations in Afghanistan during the 1980s - and mysterious connections to current US and Russian politics. 

Johnson and his ex-MI6 colleague Jayne Robinson find themselves pursuing a Russian oligarch with strong links to Putin and a past he would rather keep hidden - and also an Afghan Mujahideen bent on the most bloodthirsty revenge. The investigation is thrown awry by Johnson’s crooked former CIA boss, now on the run, and by a miscalculation of the dangers lurking in the Hindu Kush mountains, ridden with heavily armed Taliban insurgents. 

The story reaches a raw climax in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Moscow, and Kabul, as Johnson battles to overcome the powerful forces lined up against him, including former KGB agents. Stalin’s Final Sting is a gripping thriller - the fourth in the Joe Johnson series - with some twists that the listener will never see coming. Meet Joe Johnson today, and see how he uncovers buried truths from the past.

Another good Joe Johnson story

The authors attention to detail and local and cultural knowledge, make these stories very entertaining and thought provoking.
This is my first audio book, which I found useful in that I could do other things whist I listened; but on the other hand I had to contend with the orators voice and interpretation of the characters. Having read Joe Johnson stories already, the rendition of Jayne Robinson's was at particular odds with the image I had previously imagined her.
