Like a good, fast paced thriller? Fancy something a bit different, and learning a bit as you read? This is the book for you. Set in Prague, with a lot of historical references and a good smattering of politics - not so much that it becomes boring though - this book will take you on a roller-coaster of a read. Sometimes the only choice is an escape to perdition...

The author, James Silvester, creates a story of intrigue and mystery, after re-discovering his passion for storytelling after delving into the rich history of Eastern Europe. Herbert Biely, aged hero of the Prague Spring, stands on the brink of an historic victory, poised to reunite the Czech and Slovak Republics twenty-six years after the Velvet Revolution. The imminent Czech elections are the final stage in realizing his dream of reunification, but other parties have their own agendas and plans for the fate of the region. A shadowy collective, masked as an innocuous European Union Institute, will do anything to preserve the status quo. The mission of Institute operative Peter Lowes is to prevent reunification by the most drastic of measures. Yet Peter is not all that he seems a deeply troubled man, desperate to escape the past, his resentment towards himself, his assignment and his superiors deepens as he questions not just the cause, but his growing feelings for the mission target.

As alliances shift and the election countdown begins, Prague becomes the focal point for intrigue on an international scale. The body count rises, options fade, and Peter's path to redemption is clouded in a maelstrom of love, deception and murder can he confront his past to save the future? The characters are well thought out and have their flaws, but remain likable. Peter is a complex man at first glance but you will soon find out what makes him tick and why. Despite the things he has done, you will find it impossible to dislike this straight talking, foul mouthed blues fan. For those who have visited Prague, you will be able to imagine the scenes well - even if you haven't visited, the descriptive writing will transport you to the dark, beautiful streets. There's a love interest which remains interesting throughout and sweetens an otherwise gritty and tense story. You won't guess the ending and will be kept on your toes! Published by Urbane Publications with both hard and e-book versions. The book is a good read, with an enthralling story and plot which could merit a sequel... Available now on Amazon. The paperback version is now available at the Globe Bookshop in Prague.
