But in the rest of the world it's fast becoming a sensation. In Washington DC, the CIA is planning to use the book to tip the Cold War in its favour. Their agents are not the usual spies, however. Two typists - the charming, experienced Sally and the talented novice Irina - are charged with the mission of a lifetime- to smuggle Doctor Zhivago back into Russia by any means necessary. It will not be easy. There are people prepared to die for this book - and agents willing to kill for it. But they cannot fail - as this book has the power to change history."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
