Description

_______________________________

THIS SHOCKING CONSPIRACY THRILLER IS A WORK OF FICTION. MOSTLY.
_______________________________
What if the President of the United States is a foreign intelligence asset?

It's October 2016. A loud, brash businessman with a history of shady dealings and sexual misbehaviour is a serious contender to win the presidency. Even a porn star's credible allegations don't seem to slow him down.

But his most dangerous secrets may be hidden behind the former Iron Curtain.

Journalist Grace Elliot is dispatched to Europe, hot on the trail of a story so big it could blow up the entire election - if she can stay alive long enough to tell it:

The man who might become President was married to a Czech woman with a beguiling and contradictory past, no records, and no history - and who has all the hallmarks of a Soviet intelligence asset.

Her codename is Kingfisher.
And her mission is almost complete...

"This gulp-in-one-go conspiracy thriller... has some pretty scary parallels to recent events (in fact, it's written anonymously because the author based the story on real information from a protected source - oo-er!)" Sunday on Sunday, Fabulous Magazine

Review quote

[A] political thriller that is at once entertaining, frightening and thought-provoking * Calgary Herald * [A] suggestive thriller . . . There are lots of twists and turns, red herrings, and characters to follow . . . even when truth is stranger than fiction, this bit of fiction is satisfyingly offbeat. * Kirkus * A tantalizing new thriller . . . there is great house-of-mirrors fun to be had. * The Globe and Mail * Eventful storytelling - Best Recent Thrillers Roundup * Barry Forshaw, Guardian * This gulp-in-one-go conspiracy thriller... has some pretty scary parallels to recent events (in fact, it's written anonymously because the author based the story on real information from a protected source - oo-er!) * Sunday on Sunday, Fabulous Magazine *
