"Flopsy," "Mopsy," and "Cotton-tail" are code names for a Russian family defecting to the United States via Operation Beatrix. Yuri Andropov, KGB chairman, alias Flopsy, holds information that will bring down leaders and nations once he and his family are safe in the West. The CIA eagerly awaits word that the rabbits have changed hutches after the CIA stages their deaths in a car accident. Descriptions of their mangled body doubles are sometimes gruesome and the language unnecessarily vulgar. Realistic Russian accents are thick and guttural, but understandable. Clancy's pace is swift and doesn't disappoint. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
