Synopsis:
This is the first of a three part storyline that continued to have repercussions for the team long after the mission. The Squad… Flagg, Penguin, Enchantress, Deadshot, Nemesis, Nightshade and Bronze Tiger are sent on a mission into Russia to retrieve a Russian dissident author from prison. Things become unduly complicated when the Squad finds that the woman does not want to be ‘rescued’ then they are discovered far too early in their mission.
