Chernobyl Murders (Lazlo Horvath Suspense) Kindle Edition
1985, a year before the Chernobyl disaster. Hidden away in a wine cellar in western Ukraine, a Chernobyl engineer, brother of a Kiev Militia detective, reveals details of unnecessary risks at the Chernobyl plant. Concerned for his brother and family, Detective Lazlo Horvath investigates—irritating superiors, drawing the attention of a CIA operative, raising the hackles of an old school KGB major, and discovering his brother's secret affair with Juli Popovics, a Chernobyl technician. The Chernobyl plant explodes and scores of lives are changed forever. As Lazlo investigates his brother’s death in the blast, Juli Popovics arrives in Kiev to tell Lazlo she carries his brother’s child. Watching over them, KGB major Grigor Komarov enters the fray, reawakening a hard-line past to manipulate deadly resources. What will soon be an independent Ukraine is not only blanketed with deadly radiation, but becomes a killing ground involving pre-perestroika factions in disarray, a Soviet government on its last legs, and madmen hungry for power as they eye Gorbachev’s changes. With a poisoned environment at their backs and a killer snapping at their heels, Lazlo and Juli flee for their lives toward the Western frontier. "A page-turner of the highest order: from the compelling characterization to the vividly described landscape of a devastated Ukraine to the stunning cover art, Beres has penned himself a winner." —Chicago Tribune “Rich with characters, beautifully written, and fascinating with insider details, Chernobyl Murders by Michael Beres is an unforgettable journey into one of the Cold War’s most explosive episodes. From Kiev to Chicago, Pripyat to Vienna, you’ll feel the pulse-pounding threat of discovery and the white-hot heat of chase in this outstanding thriller. Beres serves up a feast of a story.” —Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Spymaster “Whenever I spend time in Chernobyl, I see ghosts. I wonder about those who once inhabited this abandoned land. In his thriller, Michael Beres unearths some of these ghosts…Chernobyl Murders kept me up night after night, turning pages when I should have been turning out the light.” —Michael Forster Rothbart, Documentary Photographer, After The Nukes “Michael Beres creates a drama of revenge from the old Soviet order, leading us on a chase across Ukraine while passionately capturing the terror, confusion, and anguish of refugees of an environmental disaster we will never forget.” —Mary Mycio, author of Wormwood Forest, A Natural History of Chernobyl
