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.
For many years Nik had been involved in law and business in few Eastern European countries, on weekends returning to Israel.

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. The 2-nd - Mortal Showdown develops against the backdrop of events surrounding the ousting of the former president of Ukraine in 2014, however it's more of an action thriller. 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)

“I remember the teacher telling us that Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union, alongside Russia. “The Soviet Union is the largest and most glorious empire that the world has ever seen,” the teacher
lectured. “We’re all proud comrades. We’re all like brothers. We’re so lucky to be part of the greatest
nation that has ever existed. We love our country and our country loves us like a mother loves her children.”

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
