Since I am always looking for ways to bring books to my readers, I jumped at the chance to participate in a book spotlight for Lou Dobbs and James O. Born’s international thriller Putin’s Gambit.  Thanks to the good people over at Forge Books we are not only spotlighting the novel but giving away one copy of the book to a winner in the US or Canada.  More about that a little later.  First, let us take a closer look at Putin’s Gambit and its authors.

While Europe comes apart, the bellicose dictator makes his move . . .

Adjusting to civilian life has not been easy for former Marine Derek Walsh. As he navigates a brutal job on Wall Street and a challenging romance, he wonders if he could be doing more with his life. When an inexplicable $200 million dollar money transfer is made on his computer, he is thrust into the world of international terror, and the global economy is knocked off its hinges.

On the other side of the Atlantic, a dangerous alliance has formed. Radical Islamists and Russian extremists have set the wheels in motion for Russia to assert its power in Europe.  The US President has proven to be weak on foreign policy, the military is stretched too thin, and Vladimir Putin judges this to be the time for Russia to regain its Soviet Empire.  Troops mass on the Estonian border, waiting for the order to move.

The FBI believes Walsh was involved in the money transfer and a group of Russians are intent on killing him. As New Yorkers become outraged upon learning of the illegal money transfer and the world economy crashes after a series of terrorist attacks, Walsh and his Marine buddies are the only ones who can keep the world from spinning off its axis.

Combing Dobbs’ years of experience covering the news on Lou Dobbs Tonight and other programs, with James O. Born’s skill for creating books filled with action and intrigue, PUTIN’S GAMBIT presents an all-too-believable what-if scenario of the reaches of Russia’s power, and the dangers that could be lurking in the future.

“PUTIN’S GAMBIT is a fun ride that also paints a plausible and timely scenario that I just hope remains a work of fiction, and does not instead show up as fact in tomorrow’s news!”

—Mark Greaney, New York Times bestselling author

“Riveting, powerful, thoroughly enjoyable.”

—Col. David Hunt, New York Times bestselling co-author of Without Mercy and Fox News Military Commentator

“Delving deep past today’s headlines, Lou Dobbs and James O. Born craft a captivating tale that’s at once thrilling and chilling.”

—W.E.B. Griffin & William E. Butterworth IV, New York Times bestselling authors of the Clandestine Operations series

“An engaging, knowing thriller of the first rank…this is a novel worth moving to the top of your reading list. A stand-out!”

—Ralph Peters, New York Times bestselling author of The Damned of Petersburg
