Nik Krasno is one of those writers who never thought he would end up authoring a book. He just knew that he had a story that apparently waited for the right moment to break out.

The 1-st book - Rise of an Oligarch is more historical fiction, encompassing the period preceding the Big Bang of the USSR and its aftermath, than other genres.

And finally the 3-d - Be First or Be Dead is purely fictional and doesn't rest on specific historical events, while dealing with global conspiracy, big biz, high finance and low morals. (less)

Lev Lewis Hi Nick,

You invited me to join 'Wealth, Writing, Worlds'. I don't think that's really for me (as yet). I am an independent author, but my book is nothing to do with business; it's a PI crime book. Being new to Goodreads, I want to start off by joining some crime fiction groups. I notice you are a member of quite a few of these, so maybe I'll join you in one (or more).

Happy writing and reading,

Lev
