Spotlight and promotion G W Eccles ~Corruption

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 


Initially his enquiries reveal nothing to cause alarm. Other factors, though, suggest otherwise: 

wherever Leksin goes, someone tries to kill him; people in a position to help him are assassinated; and 

information turns out to be misinformation. And when at last he discovers the truth, he finds himself 

unsure of whom he can trust as the stakes get frighteningly higher.
