The Geneveh Project

by Quentin Cope

Is the brutal assassination in Hong Kong of a respected Marine Insurance executive, carried out days after a violent assault by sinister forces on his family, merely a coincidence – or part of a covert plan running out of control? With a senior and well connected member of the Chinese Mafia taking an interest, someone is now determined to find out! Why has an aerial engagement between super fast fighter jets, high above the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf signalled an early end to the life of a top level government official in Tehran? Perhaps only the head of the notorious Iranian Rev Guard could answer that particularly interesting question.

Scheme 112/406, also known as The Geneveh Project, is at the heart of it all, driven by the greed of one single man; a man determined to take on a project designed to influence the outcome of a bloody war; a war that has been raging for several years between two of the largest oil producers in the Middle East. With the American CIA determined to scupper the whole plan and the British SIS sitting on the sidelines, the second most powerful man in Iran puts pressure on the cavalier English oilfield entrepreneur to finish the work on time, quoting an ancient Persian saying; â??He who wants a rose must respect the thorn’ The warning is clear – the consequences of failure – life threatening!

The stakes are running high, as is the escalating price for finishing the complex, delicate works in the middle of a front line war zone, forcing the cunning millionaire industrialist to do a deal with a dubious anglophile Iraqi Air Force General, who has the power to destroy the ambitions of all concerned – at the press of a button! When the final confrontation arrives, it is unexpected, forcing the SIS to come out of the shadows and act, leaving the senior covert CIA Middle East operative impotent; merely a bystander in an event that is to eventually take many lives – and send shockwaves around the world! So, will the possibly over confident oilfield tycoon succeed in the gamble of his life? The head of the Iranian Rev Guard has put the Englishman’s life on it! The CIA have put a billion dollar submarine on it!

A fast paced thriller set against a background of International intrigue and double cross, involving the covert arms of two of the world’s most powerful Intelligence Agencies, pitted against the determination and cunning of one single man. But who will be the eventual victor? Who can remain one step ahead? Will the Geneveh Project ever become reality – or will someone end up running for their life?



Die Gräfin Charny: Historischer Roman (German Edition)

by Alexandre Dumas

Dieses eBook: “Die Gräfin Charny” ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen.
20 Jahre ist es her, dass Giuseppe Balsamo in einer Höhle des Donnerberges im Kreise seiner Maurerbrüder aussprach, was keiner damals für möglich hielt: “Ich fordere 20 Jahre, um eine Welt zu vernichten und eine neue auszubauen. 20 Jahre, nicht um einem Monarchen, sondern um die ganze Monarchie zu zerstören. In 20 Jahren, das sind 20 Sekunden der Ewigkeit, sehen wir uns wieder. Dann urteilt selbst.” Und nun hat die Revolution wahrhaftig ihren Einzug in Frankreich gehalten, in deren Wirren sich, vor dem fantastischen aber blutroten Horizont der historischen Wirklichkeit, das Schicksal der Helden aus den Memoiren eines Arztes vollenden wird.
Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) war ein französischer Schriftsteller. Heute ist er vor allem durch seine zu Klassikern gewordenen Historienromane bekannt, etwa Die drei Musketiere und Der Graf von Monte Christo.
