In March 1987, the CIA’s Operation Acapulco Cold took on the Medellín cartel. The journey would be dangerous. The alternative for not recovering the nuke would be too horrible to imagine.
A theft occurs as a result of President Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev’s treaty agreement in January 1986. Russian SS-20 medium-range missiles were removed from Eastern Europe and their nuclear MIRV packages removed. A shadow group inside the failing Russian government steals three of the nose-cone assembles.
A Russian named Geonov is charged with selling one of these devices to the Medellin cartel. The asking price was $40 million dollars in cash. Pablo Escobar did not even blink when he was offered one. Operation Acapulco Cold is the detailed action taken by the CIA to address this life-altering situation.

A face-paced book that grips your attention from the very beginning. If you enjoy reading historical books, this book would surely entertain you. Fortin’s work clearly shows that an extensive research had been made to write this book, which revolves around the Cold War.
It’s hard to believe that this is a work of fiction, especially when the story features Ronald Reagan and a detailed setting of the 80’s. Truly an enjoyable read and it didn’t take a long time to finish the book, considering that the plot really hooked me into the story.
A 4.5 star !
