I'm trying to remember the title of a book I was reading for a short time while working an unpleasant job last year haha.
I thought Tom Clancy was the author, but I looked up his novels & none of the titles looked familiar. So it took place in 1999 I'm fairly certain, Boris Yeltsin downed pills with vodka & died early into the novel. Yeltsin's successor (not Putin in the book) went to the White House to seek economic aid for Russia (budgets & Congress were mentioned)—at the same time there was some kind of secret operation going on with the CIA against Russia with aiding Russian operatives I think, and Yeltsin's successor had a counter-op against the U.S. in the background too.
Sorry if I'm a bit sketchy on the details, I'm really trying to remember because I actually liked it. Any help appreciated, thank you.
