When Russian federal agent Nikolai Aven starts investigating the affairs of Moscow tycoon, Marat Ivankov, he finds himself caught in a web of corruption involving the lethal Russian mafiya and their powerful political allies.
With the lives of his wife and daughter at stake, Nikolai turns to the only person he believes can help, US Embassy attaché, Jack Hartman. But this is Russia. Trust is a commodity that can be bought and sold and nothing is what it seems.
Driven by a primal resolve to protect his twelve year old daughter and exact revenge, Nikolai pursues his betrayers through the crazy, helter skelter world of the New Russia to the power bases of the United States, the thriving new frontier for Russian organised crime, in a life & death game he is determined to win.
The Domino Game is a masterful thriller packed with intrigue, and well-drawn characters and set against the fascinating backdrop of modern-day Moscow and New York.
