From TV broadcaster Lou Dobbs, Putin's Gambit is an international financial thriller about a former Marine's attempt to stop a KGB plot


Former Marine Derek Walsh is having difficulty adjusting to civilian life. This challenge is magnified tenfold when an inexplicable $200 million money transfer is made on his computer—but not by him. Hurled into a world of global terror, Walsh discovers a violent plot for Russia to assert its power in Europe, a plot beginning with an Estonian invasion.

With the clock ticking steadily closer to doomsday, the former Marine must convince the FBI of his innocence and stay ahead of his pursuers long enough to keep the world from spinning off its axis.
