The Dead Man Strikes Back by James Lingard James Lingard
Genre: Thriller
Page Count: 71

Book Description:
This powerful fast moving blend of recent history with the fictional adventures of a British spy was inspired by Russia’s problems with Chechnya and the war between Russia and Georgia over semi independent Abkhazia. The result is an action packed thriller full of danger and drama. Much of the action takes place against a background of the Caucasus Mountains. But can our hero trust the Russian FSB (formerly KGB) officer who befriends him and how will she react to Anna, a Separatist?

Review by Tony Parsons
4.0 out of 5 stars A dead man strikes back 23 Nov 2013 This was a very exciting book (short story) for me to read, great almost real characters & excellent content; very well written, I will give it 4/5 stars.
By Tony R. Parsons - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The scene opens in the Caucasus Mountains were Sergei & Alexei (partisan leader) are attending a funeral for 2 fallen comrades shot by Captain Yusuf’. They were part of the Confederation of Mountain Peoples (Chechnya/Ingushetia). The war with the Georgians had been going on for quite some time.
The Separatists wanted independence for Abkhazia. Daily shelling & air strikes turned the town into ruins & must be rebuilt. The KGB/FSB & the Russian Army controlled various parts of the city. Robert (British) another covert was to report to “Jane (M16)” for his duties.

In another episode Robert & Kristina Zentrovska (KGB/FSB) battle against an air strike & Georgian troops; Robert is not real sure if she is not the enemy, but saves her anyway.

Dr. Anna Latoya attends to their injuries she is a friend of Sergei’s. Anna joins them with their next confrontation against the Georgian Special Forces.

Their search for the missing Sergei continues, as does several more battles. He was found in a hospital.

In the end the final covert attack was foiled & Robert went back to England.

I enjoyed reading this free spy book, for a short story it was fairly easy to follow. Never really figured out who Jane is, but that’s spy stories. Not sure if it is movie material. I would have to rate it at 4/5.

Thank you
Tony Parsons MSW

Can you help, please?
