With One Eye Open

Two cities. One conspiracy. A love story powerful enough to change history. 

Max Anger, 31, a former member of the Swedish military has put his warrior days behind. He is in love with Pashie, a Russian researcher whom he works with at the Swedish firm, Vektor. Committed to building democracy in the East, Vektor’s current focus is Russia. 

Pashie is on the verge of exposing a massive Russian conspiracy targeting Sweden when she uncovers indications that Max’s personal history is somehow connected. Before she can tell anyone she suddenly disappears. 

When Pashie goes missing Max is instead left with evidence that she has been working as a Russian spy. Who is telling the truth? And how will they find one another? One thing is for certain: only Max can find her.

What follows is a thrilling hunt that will lead Max to the core of the conspiracy. In order to find Pashie Max must discover his vicious and brutal side once again. It is a battle for his own sense of self as well as one to win back the love of his life.

WITH ONE EYE OPEN is a suspense thriller played out in Stockholm and St. Petersburg, 1996, when Russia is on the brink of another revolution. St. Petersburg – Russia’s so-called “Window to the West” – has swung open wide and every country wants in, all with their own agenda…
