The author is a man who has lived two lives. One ordinary and the other extraordinary. His story has not been fabricated, exaggerated, or embellished in any way. It’s the raw truth and he’s not really sure why he wrote it, but his therapist thought it was a good idea. Writing down his life’s story might simply be a part of the healing process, so he can finally move on with his life and live it like a normal person.
This has been written in a way that tries to depict how the author felt at the time and how he feels now, and he can only use words or terms that make that possible. This book is not for the prudish or faint-hearted, so if you like your reality painted over and sugar-coated, then this book is not for you.
"The Dragon"; the leader of a Kremlin sponsored Private Military Company whose reputation strikes fear into the hearts of his enemies, and is regarded as "The Angel of Death" by many, learns of his estranged wife's situation whilst carrying out an operation in Azerbaijan to stop the Chechens being supplied with arms by an old adversary: David Smythe. Against his Russian sponsor's wishes, Alex is quick to take action to recover Zara, unleashing his wrath against all who oppose him.
As Alex and The Company dig deeper into the circumstances surrounding Zara's abduction, they find themselves drawn into a much bigger international conspiracy that threatens the millennia-old Mercenary Guild's very survival, and starts a chain of events that will destabilise the fragile balance of forces keeping the world from descending into a chaotic and unstoppable conflict.
Zara's Game is a tense epic length espionage & political thriller set within a fictional clandestine world, anchored around the controversial W.M.D claims against Saddam Hussein prior to the second war in Iraq.
