The Second Lady
By Irving Wallace
On a state visit to Moscow, Billie Bradford, the beautiful and brilliant wife of the President of the United States, is abducted by the Soviets and replaced by Vera Vazilova, a superbly trained Russian undercover agent and actress who is the First Lady’s physical double.
The impostor’s mission–to induce the President to reveal a U.S. secret that will drastically tip the world balance toward Russia. But one false move–whether before TV cameras or in the White House bedroom–can destroy the entire masquerade.
And in Moscow, Billie also has a mission–to frantically seek ways to escape while daringly leading a Soviet intelligence officer astray about the most intimate area of her married life.
Two women, each playing a treacherous game in a foreign land, each taking a desperate gamble in the arms of the other’s lover–a world-shaking gamble that only one of them can win…
