The Indie Book of the Day for 13th of November, 2012!

Genre: Thriller, Contemporary

Elected amid widespread protests and allegations of vote rigging for a controversial third term, the Russian President is determined to destroy the oligarchs before they destroy him. When the global economic meltdown wipes out their wealth and they turn to the government as lender of last resort, the President seizes this chance to demolish their power base. His greatest opponent – Anton Blok, owner of the mighty Tyndersk Kombinat – faces far more than just financial ruin as his empire threatens to fall apart, and the President knows that his old enemy will stop at nothing to avoid catastrophe. With battlelines drawn, he turns to Alex Leksin, an ex MI6 investigator of Russian descent, to thwart Blok’s plans. Against the challenge of hostile Arctic conditions, Leksin must tread a dangerous path through a labyrinth of corruption until the exciting and unexpected denouement takes place in Russia’s northernmost seaport.
