Moscow is destroyed, but who was responsible?
On October 7, 2022, during President Putin’s 70th birthday celebration, Moscow was obliterated by a gigantic hydrogen bomb hidden there many years earlier by Ukrainian nationalists in retaliation for all the horrific abuses and suffering Ukraine had endured under Russia.
The long-forgotten bomb was supposedly discovered and detonated by a rogue FBI agent of Ukrainian descent, Peter Kanowsky, in support of their cause.
But what if Peter didn’t do it? What if Ukraine wasn’t even involved in the catastrophe?
What if someone else was responsible, and if so, who would commit such an appalling crime and why would they do it.
That is what DESPOT is all about. It is the story of the people trying to establish who actually was responsible for setting off the bomb that assassinated Putin, killing those many millions of innocent people, and to prove it so they can stop those responsible before they can use nuclear weapons again. And most importantly, to assure whoever was guilty pay for their dreadful crime.
This thriller is a follow-on to my previously published novel, The Forgotten Bomb.
