About The Book:
Ukraine is only the opening gambit, so far as the Russian President is concerned. With his sights set on territorial expansion and undeterred by the prospect of a new Cold War, he intends first to shift Russia’s economic focus towards the East in order to shield the country from the reprisals that his next move is sure to provoke. The President delegates to his Prime Minister the redeployment of Russia’s vast energy resources, a vital component of his strategy. But when plans for a pipeline to run through Turkmenistan and Afghanistan tilt off-course, it threatens to spread the current conflagration in the Middle East right up to Russia’s own borders. Against a background of political corruption, state-sponsored terrorism and increased Taliban insurgency, the President turns to independent troubleshooter ALEX LEKSIN whose investigations take him from Moscow into one of the world’s most sinister countries, right at the heart of Central Asia.
Our Reviewer Said:
Corruption of Power by G.W. Eccles initially unfolds like a Russian classic of old. The mood is dark. The characters are difficult to grasp. There is a whole lot of stoic Russian angst. Woven within the pages are a deep concern for the arts and the psychology of man.
But, you will fall in love with this novel in the first chapter and will be powerless to put it down. Corruption of Power tells a tale of suspense and intrigue, focusing on all too real current events. As excitement builds, the characters quickly become three dimensional, complicated people with whom we can identify. Flashbacks and backstory are there when needed, written with natural consequence through the use of an object or a thought to spark memories. Each chapter leaves the reader wanting more, yearning to see what happens next.
Corruption of Power is an incredible reading experience. It is a well written page turner that will appeal to lovers of mystery / suspense / thriller genres.
