It is a strange case of history repeating itself and international relations making strange bedfellows in Richard Hoyt's comic thriller, Trotsky's Run.

In this funny, gripping, and tongue-in-cheek look at spy versus spy, two CIA agents form an unusual partnership to unravel and forestall what appears to be the horrifying inevitability that the next President of the United States will be a KGB agent. Ex-Russian mole Kim Philby begs to be rescued from the Soviet Union. A CIA deskman ends up in Yalta. Leon Trotsky visits a Manhattan massage parlor. And all the while, the Americans and Russians exchange gambits, as a mysterious third party always looks on.

From the man who turned a beardless Fidel Castro loose in New York City in The Manna Enzyme, here is Trotsky s Run, appalling, outrageous, black comedy at its best.
