New Book Spins a Web of International Intrigue

Share Article

Taking readers across Europe, the US, and Central America, author Peter Russell presents a gripping political fiction thriller

For the past ten years, international espionage has accounted for several of the biggest news stories. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the 9/11 attacks and the never-ending parade of extremists vowing to blow up as many Western innocents as possible, have given best-selling thriller writers like Tom Clancy the inspiration to craft a plausible plot by going beyond what has actually taken place in the real world.

Author Peter Russell is no exception. His book COVERS; born out of his thirst for the espionage genre, is a gripping political spy fiction dealing with the forces of loyalty and treachery, good and evil and survival and demise.

This novel introduces a group of men, assembled by the US State Department., to take part in the secret repatriation of millions of dollars stolen by a West African Head of State, from an Italian merchant bank. Before, during and after the plan is activated, a history of deception is uncovered and an undercurrent of despair and greed emerges amongst the participants with devastating effect. This leads to a battle that results in a twisted web of international intrigue and a desperate hunt for a criminal mastermind across Europe, the US, and Central America.

Set in the late 1990s, COVERS is a fast-paced revealing action/drama that will have the reader glued to the very last page..
