about

2000. Nina Vassileva has no desire for martyrdom. But despite the long Russian shadows, corruption, and violent misogyny infesting her ‘new' Ukraine, she dedicates herself to uncaging the better angels of the republic. It proves a dangerous mission. Cruelly kidnapped into sex slavery in Birmingham, Nina escapes, finding chance sanctuary with MI6, who turn her linguistic skills into an 'asset'. Dropped back into Kyiv at the Canadian embassy as an interpreter and 'Special Cultural Liaison', she flies boldly amongst those who still live on Moscow time. Sacha Vorontsky, Canadian lawyer of Ukrainian descent, attends an international conference in Kyiv. In Nina's voice and eyes, he quickly senses the zeal and aspirations of the post-Wall generation and falls both for her and her 'cause'. Two little soldiers fighting the endless aftershocks of Holodomor, the Gulag, and those parasites scurrying to profit from the fresh crosswinds over the Steppes.

"All in, this novel is quite 'deep'...by nature of theauthor's research the political content of Ukraine is necessary and vital togive the storyline a good base to improvise on. Resulting from this the author produces a 'cliffhanger' with a deceptivetwist two thirds of the way through...marvelous."<_o3a_p>
