THE COLOMBIAN CONTRACT (A contract that threatened the credibility of the US Administration) The Colombian Contract is a powerful, post Gulf War thriller with a very emotive and heinous assassination plot. As the US is fighting the Gulf War. It is also involved in a war against the Colombian Drug Syndicates. The Drug Barons are losing ground and are screaming for revenge, and have taken out a contract on an unnamed, leading US political figure. Regos Shamir, alias Boris Stravok, is a top terrorist who learned his killing trade with the KGB before falling foul of his masters and taking his trade into the services of the Colombian Drug Barons. He has been given the Colombian Contract and all the undercover networks and resources of the drug market to back his play. The CIA want him dead and so does the KGB because he is exploiting, and endangering his former KGB contacts. Shamir is psychopathic killer who gets results because of his meticulous planning and patience, and for this contract he boasts a new type of murder weapon. The crux of the novel is the assassination threat and the fallout, dangers, and consequences that it causes and leaves in its wake. Many of those who become involved in this murderous web of intrigue, deception, and treason have common roots in the days when the Cold War threat was at its height, and Shamir was the top hatchet man for the notorious KGBs Department 13 operating in France, North Africa and the USA. At a wedding reception in the town of Railton in North Minnesota, a bomb explodes killing the bride and bridegroom and several guests and injuring many more. This, apparently indiscriminate, heinous killing becomes even more vile when the FBI discover that the explosive used was more powerful than they had come across before, and that the nature of the bombing had been by an implant, capsule bomb that had been innocently carried by the groom in his body. It is later confirmed that the bomb was a trial run by Shamir of his new, fiendish, killing weapon of which he boasted. And that he has another bomb and another, innocent carrier. Instantly, Shamir has raised the steaks and put the combined CIA/FBI Anti Terrorist Unit, into a more frantic ball game, and, Bradley, a tough, hard hitting CIA man who now heads the combined unit has to make some hard decisions. There is an immediate blanket of secrecy put over their operation. Shamir now holds all the aces. Bradley and his team have only their questions and the dangers. Who is innocently carrying the bomb? Who is Shamir`s target? And what is his deadline? Every Government Intelligence Agency is recruited to help find Shamir, and help is also sort from friendly, foreign Intelligence. Agencies. But Bradley knows that even if he gets the answers, he will still have the problem of the implant bomb, which the FBI explosive specialists now believe cannot be removed without the very high risk of detonation. And who would risk undertaking such an operation? And what of the innocent carrier? How will he or she react? And supposing Bradley does get the carriers name, what does he do? Once he makes any move, no matter how secretly, he runs the risk of a leak of information. And to counter Shamirs threat, the Colombian Barons will be the victors and there will be a lot of dead political figures. The stage finally becomes set for a night of summer madness and a game of Russian roulette with the lives of some very important people.
