Bear Trap Publisher's summary

Ruthless Russian Spetsnaz soldiers are marauding the Alaskan wilderness, killing everyone who has the misfortune to stumble across their path. They’ve invaded America to bring a defector back to the Motherland. Days after the Berlin Wall came down, KGB Colonel Oleg Karpinsky walked into the US Embassy in Stockholm to defect.

Thirty years later, Dr. Karpinsky is an American citizen and respected CIA scientist conducting research in the paranormal sciences. He uses a method similar to ESP called technical remote viewing to gather intelligence on America’s enemies and allies. He is enjoying his annual winter vacation at an isolated cabin in the frozen Alaskan wilderness with his personal security detail of deputy US marshals when the NSA intercepts a message from the Kremlin to its special operations submarine BS-64 Podmoskovye. It orders the covert extraction of Karpinsky. Attempts to warn the marshals via their satellite phone are unsuccessful.

The US intelligence community assesses Karpinsky and his protectors are in mortal danger. The president orders the Pentagon to retrieve them before the Russians can attack. There’s only one problem. The most powerful nation in human history has been rendered near impotent by a vicious Arctic storm. Alaska is experiencing severe icing weather that has grounded all military air assets within range of the cabin except for a lone Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter on the ramp at Homer Airport. The Pentagon initiates Operation Bear Trap and scrambles to assemble an ad hoc rescue team of coast guardsmen and military reservists and retirees for a possible suicide mission facing a highly trained team of Spetsnaz operators.

Fortunately, the NSA determines a CIA paramilitary operations officer and retired Navy SEAL, Jon Smith, has just arrived in Homer for his own well-deserved vacation. He is recalled to active duty to prepare and lead the rescue team. Can he and his ragtag group of Red Shirts save them before time runs out?
